Re: Apart from the NSA...
You're forgetting 4k & holographic pr0n.
I'd like to see Moving Mars - Greg Bear, for the realistic uber technologied mars based society or the Revelation Space saga - Alastair Reynolds for the huge ships and hard sci-fi, whizz bang space battles!
Either of these would be stunning for the visuals & no nonsense science! (well not *much* nonsense science!)
Well Hoo-rah we should buy it from the Yanks immediately!!
Wait the yanks are buying... from us?!... Lewis, what's going on?? I'm frightened :*(
And, with all of that high tech...
Initially I thought wind power was a complete waste too but reducing the cost of said components, materials and general mass saving will then lead to cheaper foundations and erection. Secondly (as I've read in prior Reg articles), having optimised aero elastic surfaces on the blades like on helicopters and laser monitoring of oncoming wind will give a good efficiency increase too. I really think that in 10-20 years current turbines will look like museum pieces. Cost/KW is just going to go down and down and become more and more financially viable.. Especially when you consider the vastly increasing fuel costs in the future.
