Waggling airflow improvements have not been discovered soon enough. Nature has been mimicked in many forms from the design of boats, submarines, aircraft, shelters, and even escavators. Bio-mimicry will continue to be part of engineering design in the future. If they ever create half of THE efficiency that is claimed with turbulence flow control, say around 20%, savings in direct fuel costs will be huge. All airliners that take on this technology stand to make a windfall profit in a very short time. If Warwick University was to ask for funding now they would return the investors their money in a few years. Why wait until 2012 for a prototype? Maybe there is other vested interests in the fuel business. I never fly myself very much, but I say we should make these heavy chunks of metal that make thousands of flights a week around the world in very turbulent and dangerous conditions, fly as efficiently as they can. For safety sake. We only have so much cheap and easy fuel left, and then we will have to sit and watch the cost of flying go through the roof. I say we need aerodynamic development like this for our planets sake; yesterday.

Regen-braking makes best out of the slow/fast,slow/fast traffic patterns that is typical in city and urban traffic areas. This is not stopping and idling as such but is still straining car and truck motors using more fuel. This is highly dependent on driver behavior but still out does fuel use on highway cruising cars. Hope this helps SJC.
