Hong Kong to purchase 8 "supercapacitor," 28 electric buses for $180 million

"And in case you were wondering, $180 million for 36 buses means each one will set Hong Kong back $5 million." -Eric "The Instigator" Loveday OR, you could NOT be such a simpleton! You could realize that you cannot simply divide the total cost of this project by the number of final products produced. This is a Research grant which will test the viability of super capacitors in the real world. You could understand that the REAL "product" is research! If you were as simple as Eric is, then you would have been mad as hell at NASA for spending billions of dollars for Just 3 guys on the moon. But the next 3 guys didn't cost as much... Oh, and now we have GPS! $180 million could still be a waste of money, but for different reasons than "for 36 buses".
