    This can be a game changer for fuel cells. One thing they didn't say was the lifespan of this new material.

    It talks about its potential use in fuel cells and obviously if this is practical then it would dramatically reduce the cost of fuels cells.
    But I wonder if it can also be used in catalytic converters for neutralizing poisonous gases from vehicle exhausts and factory chimneys thus dramatically reduce the cost of catalytic converters as well?

    The problem there is an auto cat converter runs very hot, red hot inside, something like 1000 degrees F. That gel converter sounds to me like it wouldn't take that kind of temperature.

    I can't help wondering if they're going to get Bill Cosby to be the pitch man.

    Ron Popeil would be a good one.
