""We have produced all the hydrogen we need for the coast-to-coast trip using power from the grid, but because they pay us more to put power on the grid from our solar cells than they charge us when we use grid power for electrolysis, we actually have a surplus in our account," - interesting business idea! Let's all of us do that and make more money ;-)...So what happens when government stops subsidizing solar power? Kris

Any safety issues with hydrogen fuel? I wouldn't want to be the Hindenburg during an automobile accident.

We had an inventor here in KC in the late 70's who had several Hydrogen cars sunning back then. He would even drink the water that came out of the exhaust!! Nothing new here, it is simply the need for infra-structure that keeps this from happening.

Interested to see the economics with a real life accounting - not based on a 'non viable in the large scale' anomaly.

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.
