Horizon will unveil at the CES 2010 a personal hydrogen station for your home. The Horizon HYDROFILL is a small desktop device that
simply plugs into the AC, a solar panel or a small wind turbine, automatically extracts hydrogen
from its water tank and stores it in a solid form in small refillable cartridges.
contain metallic alloys that absorb hydrogen into their crystalline structure, and release it back at
low pressures, removing concerns about storing hydrogen at high pressure.
This storage method
also creates the highest volumetric energy density of any form of hydrogen storage, even higher
than liquid hydrogen. Unlike conventional batteries, these cartridges carry more energy capacity,
are cheaper, and do not contain any environmentally-harmful heavy metals.
In addition to making many new fuelcell products possible, the refueling device enables a lower
cost, scalable, and consumer-centric hydrogen supply model which eliminates the dependence on
large-scale fueling infrastructure investments.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
