While TWICE covers Mitsubishi’s audio and video products, the company is involved in other projects that are, or will be, literally out of this world.Mitsubishi has teamed up with IHI to work on a plan developed by the Japanese government to construct a $21 billion orbiting solar-power station capable of generating 1 gigawatt of electricity and beam that power back to Earth. This is enough electricity to power 294,000 homes.
The two companies plan to work out a way to beam the electricity back to Earth in four years, and the Japanese government hopes to have a working prototype in space by 2015.
There are more then a few hurdles to overcome to make this project a reality. For the complete story, click here.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
