    I would have to say that Pentadyne flywheel energy storage unit is probably my favorite on the list. That is pretty amazing, and could lead to some big things in the future.

    All are good products, though!

    Mobile solar power looks the best to me. I cant think of anything more useful in a bad spot than power where you need it when you need it.

    Those masonry blocks look like a great advancement. It takes a tremendous amount of energy and non-renewable resources to create concrete and brick but these require a much smaller footprint.
