    WHy do we have to be so negative. These roads are already being used in the Netherlands. Let’s hope one day this will make the world better, let’s pray that Dominica can be blessed with these roads to help our economy in some way not say stuff like the inventor will be killed or it’s a hoax without researching it. I’ve read about this since last year and prayer for the day that everyone can benefit from this.

      That would be great, except that’s not completely true. They did a test using a BIKE PATH not an actual road. Many of the issues raised with this idea has to do with durability and efficiency, both in terms of production of the material to surface and repair the roads and generation of electricity. I’m not particularly savvy in these areas so I can’t explain clearly enough as to why this idea is not feasible but if you do a youtube search you’ll find many videos debunking it. It’s telling enough that they chose to block comments on the official video. If this idea was solid it would hold up to criticism, even if it’s mostly negative.

    Great stuff. Now we just need to get the people who believe the world might come to an end soon out of the way so we can put things like this in place to save the future.

    Kudos to DNO for being visionary to share such useful information. We need more such articles and less of those which elicit idle chatter or political drama
