Great ideas and lots of creativity using nanotechnology, thank god for government research, now we need Market savvy that understands the true meaning of deploying this technology. Removing barriers and positioning the real value. Been holding this since early 90's all thru the name changes.... Dr, Yaniv is sharp, but commercial positioning for success has been totally missing.
Stanford Ovshinsky was the greatest inventor never to make a mega fortune if u don't count Edison. ENER (Energy Conversion Devices) actually had a great run to 100 on initial work with Toyota and lithium batteries. They had so many bad deals for valuable technology. Sadly, shortly after his death the company headed for bankruptcy. Deja vu? Time will tell.
The only thing Stan was good as was conning companies to give him money to run his labs for 40 years and never invented anything that has shown any real value in the marketplace. He did tinker around with batteries, solar etc. but could never use any of these developments to make a product that could make a profit. So what good are inventions that aren't useful and profitable?
If Dr. Yaniv, the so-called "Renaissance Man" can bring "creative garages" to market and make us a return on our investments, lets do it. $200,000 government contracts aren't going to carry us much longer. Never should have invested in this company. Printing paste? We could make more money selling toothpaste!
