I love this stuff. Smart people solving real problems, smartly.

Inventors of Solar Roadways, Julie and Scott Brusaw, have raised over $2 millions through IndieGoGo and won funding from the Federal Highway Administration to build two prototypes (already complete) so despite the nay-sayers, this thing could happen, at least some aspect of it (until Big Energy gets their oily hands on the patents). Taking the politics out of the equation, challenges to overcome, it is an idea with merit.
