I previously wrote about the X-Prize Foundation who offered $25,000 to the craziest video idea to choose the idea that should be explored as the next $10m X PRIZE in Energy and the Environment.
The result may even have been announced by the time you read this, but it’s interesting to look at the three finalists videos:
Jonathan Dreher, from Cambridge, MA: “Energy X PRIZE: Reduce Home Energy Usage”
A prize to reduce the home energy consumption of American communities.
Alan Silva, from Roy, UT: “The Energy Independence X PRIZE”
A prize to develop energy-independent homes that exist completely off the grid.
Kyle Good, from Irvine, CA: “The Capacitor Challenge”
A prize to develop a new storage medium, an “ultra-capacitor.”
Personally I think the last one is my favorite. How about you?
