I'm still waiting for Lockheed Martin's revolutionary compact fusion device. I suspect these wonderful announcements are just the media (in search of sensationalism) aided and abetted by corporations trying to bump the short term stock price up so the CEO can get the bonus he feels entitled to, or the professor or college can get the grant they are salivating over... Bullshit put out there by greedy, incompetent, unethical, idiots.
