'Electric Roads' Could Charge EVs As They Drive

via internet cars transportation

What if there was a way to build roads that could charge electric cars' batteries as they drove over them? It'd certainly go a long ways in easing range anxiety, and could drop the size (and price) of EV batteries significantly. GE's Txchnologist takes a look at the 'electric roads' that would do exactly that -- though it seems to me that if we're going to build electrified highways across the nation, we'd be better off just opting for high speed rail.
