Dutch Architect Plans 3D Printed Building
You have a very interesting website. I especially liked your innovative re-use of your old Styrofoam. I wish I had mod points to give you.
I had no idea it took so much wood to tackle a project like that. How much money did you need to spend on wood for that project? Will you be able to reuse the wood after it is removed from the concrete? Do you think a 3D printed home would save on material costs after you factor in the cost of the wood?

Ford Building Cars That Talk To Other Cars
There's few things more irritating to me than waiting for a red light when there are no other vehicles at an intersection.
All I want is a simple way to communicate to the traffic light to let it know that I am approaching so I don't have to stop. It seems that most automatic lights I have encountered wait until I have come to a near full stop - which partially defeats the purpose.
Implement this and then BAM - instant time savings and 3+ Miles per gallon savings for every vehicle on the road.
