New X Prizes January 30, 2006
Via Slashdot, I learned that the X Prize Foundation is working on new challenges. Personally, I’m particularly thrilled & delighted about new ideas in automotives. X Prize foundner Peter Diamandis gets it right when he asks, “why do we still drive cars that use an internal combustion engine and only get 30 miles per gallon?”
For more info about Diamandis’ vision, check out his talk from Pop!Tech 2005 via IT Conversations.
