Maria Helena Braga accepted and asked me if Thursday 10:00am hour of Austin/Texas.
It will be 6:00am in my city. Unless she accept 12:00 Texas (8:00 on Brazil)

Still no confirmation of use SKYPE or if she have SKYPE installed. So I will email again...

Who would like to participate (if she accept SKYPE and more people) ?

One little problem. I can make the interview alone with her, and also use all the question in this thread, speaking in portuguese, since she runs better on portuguese (and me too), and send subtitles text to ecomoder admistrator to put the video on ecomodder chanel. Or I can make the interview in english, but it would run be slower due the work of translate in real time to english.

I will not be able to attend, but I am looking forward to seeing / hearing it later on.

I will see if she can at 12:00 of Texas. (lunch time)

In case nobody else could join, should the interview be in portuguese (to add english subtitles later)or in interview?
Portuguese will run quite more naturally, since she and me have portuguese as first language.

I will instal a software to allow record videos from SKYPE. Hope she have SKYPE, since she didn't confirmed this detail yet.

If Portuguese is both of your first languages, I would use that.

Ok, portuguese unless more people join the interview.

I get new questions of mine. Curious if the cost could be, in industrial scale, lower than 100 dollars per Kw (value to allow electric cars sky rocket and start replace combustion engine cars).
Also curious if such batteries capacitors, if it really can convert ambient heat into electricity, could be designed in a plate tin shape (pouch cell) cells to be fitted bellow solar panels and works as energy storace for each panel and also as aditional power generation source and as heasink for the panels, presuming a large surface area absorbs more heat.

Maybe also one few questions just to please conspiracy theory believers: Does she believe oil company would try to destroy this work, sabotage, or something?
If for any reason the project don't run as expected, delay, industry get problems in scale-up, would she fear conspiracy theory blievers would say she sold the whole thing to oil companies?
A bit hard questions, maybe silly, but if I did not make the conspiracy believers will ask anyway.

Maybe ask of they have been approached by any entity (not just an oil company) that may wish to buy their the rights to the work have everyone sign non disclosure stuff, you know that conspiracy stuff you always hear about.
It could be Saudis, UAE, Russian types, not just oil companies.

Yeah... and other conspiracy theories like researchers life being in danger.

Can you imagine what would be from countries so economically dependant on oil, if someone had found a replacer for it ?
But batteries alone are far to full replace oil, since it's also used in jet planes, in industry, to produce plastic, and many others.

I don't think this will replace oil but could put noticeable dent in the world's largest passenger car markets.
One of the biggest being the US where a lot of people are opposed to electric for some reason.
As of 2017 only 0.15% of registered passenger cars on the road in the US is pure electric.
I'm one of them. Soon maybe 2 of them.

Do you really think these batteries could cram something like 75 kwh into the pack size of a 2011 to 2018 leaf?

I won't be available, and wouldn't be any help, but thanks for taking the initiative.

Capture it the best you can and it can be analyzed at leisure later. But words matter, I wouldn't use 'conspiracy' and 'theory' near each other. )

You can frame it differently, drop names like Preston Tucker and Stan Myers.

To take away car's polution from big cities will be incredible.
With on-wheel motors and very high density batteries, cars could have a new design, with lot more intern space, confortable. Plus self driving comming (if prices drops a lot). Confortable, ecologic, safe transport.

Is you electric car a DIY project, adding batteries and a electric motor to a conventional car ?

Yes, a polite adjetive would be more approproated. Suggestions ?

Remamber about the japanese water car ("moved" by water) ?
Indeed it was hydrogen, moved by hidrogen, and boron would react with water and release hydrogen, creating boron oxide. To reclycle the boron oxide you need a lot, really a lot of electricity. But people believed it was really moved by water, and since it never got in news agains people imagine oil company sabotaged that water car.

I'm curious about the energy density of boron (in terms of hydrogen releases) per kg.

Before the boron "water" cars there was people who built water cars in home, just to get in to the news as a inventor or as wise. They just did a car with batteries to make electrolysis of water, using a lot of batteries, and the hydrogen released would move the car. But it was much less efficient than use the direct energy of the batteries to move a electric motor. So it was just home made to get in to the news.
Even so many fools thinks it was a miracle car that government or oil companies sabotaged.
