Solar Freakin' Roadways
From Idaho-based start-up Solar Roadways, run by engineers Scott and Julie Brusaw, a brilliant idea that will provide clean energy, cut pollution, keep roads snow-free, revolutionize road safety, eliminate electrical and telephone poles, allow year-round biking, create thousands of jobs, and oh yeah, save the planet. A couple more days to their IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign, which has already raised almost a half million over their $1 million goal after initial funding from federal highway officials. Detractors raise objections - for starters, a projected $56 trillion price tag - but dreams have to start someplace. Plus, their video is almost as brilliant as their idea.
