Submission + - The Bloom Box: The Working Low Cost Fuel Cell (

MBCook writes: "Last night, 60 Minutes aired a 13 minute piece on Bloom Energy and their Bloom Box, a new kind of fuel cell. Able to run on natural gas, biogas, or hydrogen, the devices have been in production testing for months at Google, eBay, FedEx, and Wal-Mart. The version to power an American house is smaller than a bread box, and a unit large enough to power a Starbucks costs about $800k."
