What I was hoping to hear in the presentation was how much hydrogen can be stored in one of their canisters/disks, and how many of them would be needed to power the average car to what distance. If it can achieve faster refueling and longer travel distances than EVs, it would reduce or eliminate the "range anxiety" issue. The concept sounds great, because hydrogen storage and distribution is the main sticking point for it, and if we can solve that it will be a great boost for the "hydrogen economy."

It would be great if they would make a public test of the unit.

I presume the laser will only release the hydrogen from a tiny spot at any given instant, and of course that laser requires energy, both to create the light and then to move either the light beam or the film to new surfaces. I find it difficult to believe that it could produce sufficient gas to power a large truck or train, much less a ship or the grid.

As soon as he said in effect "So good it was banned", my BS radar was activated.

I'm still waiting for the carburetor that runs on water.

Yeah, the part about powering rockets was pretty hokey also...
