A complex invention, Solar Roadways.

Only one day left on Indiegogo. (Though they have already collected twice their goal.)

This just ridiculous. They have no actual data that would allow the project to be evaluated. What they need is data on the cost of manufacturing the tiles, the electricity they produce, and their lifetime. This is what they would need if they were raising money in the traditional way, and the reason they aren't is because it wouldn't stand up.

Ken's link to Thunderf00t's video is great. He has two more on the same subject:

He devastates the claims.

Yes. It isn't too hard to rip apart the idea of melting snow using solar energy, when the solar panels are covered with snow.
