I appland the effort being undertaken with the solar plane and like the battery night time flying solution. The innovation is critical to get others thinking outside of the box. I still question the cost to produce solar power vs the traditional power generation cost. If and when solar can be competitive with water/coal/etc power generation costs then we will see a revolution. Until then, it is a neat concept but only a proof of concept and not a real world solution. Again, I love the idea but question the cost.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
