In a 3-minute streaming video, this online TV show captures CalCars' experience and ambitions at the MakerFaire very well. Here's how the Microsoft-sponsored 10.net is described: "10 is a place for people who want to use technology to change the world. Every weekday at 10:00 am (PST) we'll update this site with a new video that highlights people, their passions and often the technology they are using."
"The 10 Show" with Laura Foy and Tina Wood CalCars... Taking a Prius Hybrid to 100+ MPG! So Laura heads to Maker Faire and gets indepth information on those ridiculously high gas prices. Okay, well kind of. She talks to the founder of CalCars and learns how they can convert a Toyota Prius so that it can be charged using your household electricity ... power that is a whole lot cheaper than the gas a normal Prius uses to generate all of its electric power. Learn how they make this work, and how much easier it would be for Toyota to make their hybrids work this way in the first place. Enjoy! Oh and Laura's not so bad either. http://on10.net/TheShow/2892
