Are you broke? Good with electronics? Build a better AC/DC box, get back in black with $1m

Re: No they don't

The little town in Denmark that I lived in when I was a kid had a DC grid despite AC being already common in most of the rest of the country. My dad had DC motors in his furniture factory and they were pretty big compared to modern three phase units. Anyway, the town switched over to AC in '57 or so.
