On The Sniffer this time, I’m back with a solar power update, in particular carbon nanotubes as a way to add solar generation capabilities to windows. And guess what? I can actually explain the science in a clear and understandable way. For those of you who’ve been listening to us for a while, this alone is worth tuning in for. Nora Young points to Lisa Rochon’s article on the energy loss problems of today’s glass tower condos. Could this be a solution?
Meanwhile, Nora talks about a pilot project in Japan to allow motorists to pre-order their drive-through meals via two-way navigation systems. Convenient, sure, but what about distractible driving? And what about drivers turning into Jabba the Hutt?
