University professors. Meaning they do it for science, and grant money, not to get filthy rich. The concept is out there but the next step is to make it feasible and affordable.
I don't really care about the answer. If Detroit wins then that is good. Or if Tokyo wins. Spread around the tech a bit more, why concentrate everything in Silicon Valley?
