    Batteries are out. Get electricity right out of the air. Atlas Shrugged, anyone?

    Researchers get electricity from the moisture in the air. Starting small, but aiming big. Limitations: bad weather could destroy the power plant.

    P.S. Yes, the new power in Atlas Shrugged was from atmospheric static electricity, I know.

    That's interesting. I suppose Ayn liked air ions for cheap energy. I'll have to get that wall paint so I can at least have some excuse, accurate or not, as to why the Japanese Bonsai plant given me soon died. [A friend solved his failure by using green spray paint on his plant. Worked great! ]
