Solar Roadways Crowd Sourcing New Road and Parking Lot Tech – This is Cool
The video is kind of dry, and low-buck-style, but the tech seems pretty cool, and the idea is nice. Imagine all the roads being replaced with screens that can update road conditions, melt the snow off itself, provide it's own lighting, collect power for cars and cities, and transmit wifi signals for us while we drive! Solar Roadways is the Indiegogo campaign to bring all this to us.
How much will all this cost? They're looking for $1 Million. If this stuff works they way they claim, and can collect energy for us, transmit data, update and light our roads...this could totally be worth it!
I imagine the pothole problems would be different, though...
