This in interesting. A glimpse of the near future. I see the end of the conventional petrol (gasoline) driven motor car. New compact cities. Lightweight compact electric personal vehicles, many more bicycles (recent visit to bicycle friendly Berlin was amazing), Segways and mobile electric everything. Much more solar electric power generation. High altitude solar electric aircraft might replace some of the commercial satellite traffic. Biologically inspired engineering is the future.

For electric vehicles, something like this is better than microbatteries:

Supposedly can charge a car in less than a minute.
