    I am still far too much of a newbie to be able to intelligently speak on any of the items listed in this website, but it all seems very interesting.

    Will anyone comment on the veracity of this article, and if it's really as "cutting edge" as they make it sound?

    I find item #3 particularly interesting.

    Nice find, MacLaddy.
    I think some of the terminology/grammar used in the descriptions are not accurate.
    As an example, a bi-metal strip(think thermostat) will bend as the temperature increases(we all know why) but I don't think it would be proper for me to cite that effect and say "heat bends matter"
    Maybe I'm being too picky. In any event, nice find!!
