we may need to look at a similair system to trains
overhead cables or a side rail where power can be accessed
As our motorways have already blighted the countryside maybe
the installation of wind turbines/solar panels along the route would meet less opposition
and help provide clean energy for clean vehicles directly

The Seaway was designed to mimic body action...
I'm sure that (Segway inventor) Kamen learned from his failure and is working on something else as his interests involve finding solutions to many of our world's problems in the medical and environmental areas. He is currently working on solutions to clean water in third-world countries, low cost, clean power generation, and many others. He invented the portable dialysis machine among many other modern medical devices that have improved the lives of many people.


No doubt, his next invention will be better.

I have only known well one great inventor in my life, that's Sir Clive Sinclair. He invented the pocket calulator and the Personal Computer - that's great going IMO.

But not all of Clive's inventions succeeded. The C-5 Electric Car never quite lived up to his expectations for it. I reckon it was too low, and hence those navigating it never felt safe in traffic. But if everyone was at the same height, it might have worked. Maybe some advanced community would ban cars, and allow only low electric vehicles, like Sinclair's. Then the C-5 might make a comeback.

Unless it is feasible :

We can not sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Yeah.
Maybe we need a SHIFT in how we think about batteries.

Most breakthroughs are "outside the box", rather than mere refinements of what came before
