New Blog of Interest on EEstor

If you're interested in cars that can run on water, you may also be interested in news surrounding a company called EEStor that claims to have created a supercapacitor capable of rendoring current battery technology obsolete. For example, the claim is they have technology you can charge an electric car for 5 minutes at a cost of $9 and then drive that car 500 miles.

Many news outlets picked up the story and so I decided to create another blog devoted to it.

Here's the blog. I've included links to articles on CNN, New York Times, etc.

Update on Aquygen

It's been awhile since I posted anything on this blog about Aquygen. So, on a whim, I decided to call Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc and try to talk with Denny Klein to see how his venture is progressing. I had tried this a year ago when his technology was finding its way into several news outlets but the phone was always busy, ie, ringing off the hook. Today, a year later, the phone is answered on the first ring. I explained to the receptionist that I was a blogger and wanted to interview Denny or someone to get an update on their business. She said, "we are not providing interviews at this time. " "Really, why not?" "Policy." --long pause-- "And what is the policy based on---did something happen that caused it to go into effect?" "No, that's all I can say at this time." I pressed her a bit more by explaining that I just wanted to ask some innocent questions as a follow on to the discoveries Klein has made. But apparently this is strict policy against it now. Just in case anyone wants to try the same, here is the info grabbed from their website. See also the note about the "auto system."
