New droplet-based electricity generator:

I don't understand it, but it would sure be great if they get it to work.

I'm betting the oil companies worldwide would pay billions to make this go away....

This reminds me of the WOM (write only memory, 1972). Computers as we know them today didn't exist back then. Back then we called them micro-controllers. Microsoft, Apple, Dell, none of those companies existed yet. If you needed to "analyze" something you had to build your own micro-controller. The WOM was supposed to be an inside joke at the company, but was accidentally published in the 1972 electronics catalog. It had a lot of engineers scratching their heads as exactly how to effectively apply a "write only memory" in a micro-controller. The company had so many calls from engineers they would re-publish the data sheet from time to time. I first saw in in 1978 in the LM catalog.

You can download the 1972 datasheet for the WOM here:
