I reported on the development of EEStor ultra-capacitors back in Sept. ’07. Anticipation is lately coming to a boil, and press releases are flying. Production (rather than prototype) models of the breakthrough electrical storage device may be announced before year’s end, and a hands-free automated production line is apparently undergoing third-party verification.
An anonymous (but independently verified legitimate) blogger in periodic contact with EEStor Inc., has created an excellent site to post information and comments from those knowledgeable in the scientific debate and investment opportunities arising from the EEStor saga. The tension is palpable as every tantalizing bit of news and rumor is sliced and diced by naysayers and true believers, any of whom may or may not have an agenda!
My legal take is that the EEStor principals (who are legitimate and reputable businesspeople) would not expose themselves to the civil and criminal fraud charges that would likely threaten if EEStor turns out to be some sort of sham (a claim that hasn’t yet been fully put to bed). Too much funding money has changed hands based on what has been said and implied at this point. Electric car manufacturer Zenn Motor Company, leading US defense contractor Lockheed-Martin, and famous venture capitalists Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers are all early investors/licensees.
In other news… are you one of ~8,000,000 Americans unknowingly residing in the scarily-named “Main Core“?
