I think the main hurdle to bringing this technology to market is figuring out how and who they will charge for the electricity. My understanding is that it is ready for small electronics apps, but they haven't figured out how to profit off of anything after the initial sale of the hardware. It's brilliant though. I hope they're able to muster enough r&d money to bring high voltage systems into service in the future.
