cobra_commanderAnyone who has driven though a western mountain pass in summer can see the stupidity of this idea.
Maybe on some low mileage roads in the the SW this could have potential, but it will be a long time before this can work on a road that sees heavy traffic. How well do they take repeated exposure to semi's rolling over them? How expensive is it to replace the broken tiles?
I think at this point the main market will be private driveways and sidewalks, obviously there are a few things that would need to worked out in order to make it a large scale thing like the video suggests. It's basically still a prototype, but once some of the bugs are worked out and more innovations are made, it seems somewhat viable.
The first telephones were shit but now we carry little computers in our pockets.
