The Solar Roadways project keeps chugging along. One of the many commissions it’s set to undertake in the next year will involve taking part in the renovation of the local Amtrak depot in Sandpoint, Idaho. From the Bonner County Daily Bee:

Brusaw said the solar panels, protected by industrial-strength glass and equipped with LED lights, could be programmed to warn nearby individuals about incoming trains. The heating elements in the panels would also keep the platform clear of snow and ice.

According to Brusaw, the platform could be installed as early as next spring.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This could be what saves us.

Meanwhile, some interesting information has come to light about the infamous “Thunderf00t” video troller. It seem that Mister Video troll set out to attack a feminist videogame industry critic, Anita Sarkeesian, using the same sleazy methods as he used to attack Solar Roadways — and with conclusions that were just as easily debunked.
