Something like this would make the idea of busses running only on Ultracaps more practical. If a bus can get 10 miles on a charge, then recharge at each stop ("sipping"), then most communities would become practical for such a bus.

The Nobel prize for physics went this year to the discoverer of Graphene. I also heard they can produce this material now in labs. Looking at the properties of this stuff it could become a serious battery killer.
Hmmm, if they can grow this into a 3-dimensional lattice sufficiently large, it could be used in megacaps exceeding the capacity of batteries.

This is probably a longer term solution, since it is not nearly so simple to fabricate human-scale devices when you have to grow the lattice in special vacuum chambers, etc.
