Thank you for pointing this out to me, Jason. It is an amazing project, engaging read and mind-blowing concept.

Darren, thanks for those links...I should have dug them up for the initial post.

And if you're ever in London, the first prototype they built is at the science and transportation museum there; I saw it when I was there back in February.
