Do the math at $150 apiece, and the environmental impact of that. Not to mention that fossil fuels generate most of the electricity in the US.
Well, it'* not that great for the environment, but at least he/she feels better. That'* what it'* all about, isn't it?

Although those seem a lil large... Hideous as well i might add.

$36k plus the batts like Bill mentioned is pretty steep..

The dimples actually create turbulance that helps bring moving air around the back of the golf ball effectivly reducing drag area. It'* interesting, I've never noticed it on a vehicle before. If it actually works in this aerodynamic case, it'* a great idea, IMO.
