« on: April 01, 2017, 08:36:04 am »

I apologize if this has already been posted and I missed it.

Seems interesting-but expensive.

I've thought about atomic powered speakers, but there's always this possibility....

I think Ivan has one and let it slip. Didn't you sign the NDA on that technology?  :)

I mean... It does work. It's just insanely inefficient. I mean you'd probably need tens of millions of amps worth of power at the source, to deliver that 750 amps worth of power to the arrays.

The technology is prolific now, used to charge your phone even! ;)

Having just watched a documentary on quantum mechanics, anything is possible!
We have a venue at a local university called the Quantum Nano Centre.
We can do gigs that take no power, are infinitely small, happen in 2 places at once and are starting or stopping at the same time. ;D ;D
