Can't help but feel a little cynical about this, it's a nice little PR exercise brought to you courtesy of the UK TV licence payer but there is nothing really ground breaking there, more incremental development than blue sky innovation. Water cooled computers? Totally necessary in the days of valves and punch cards so it's about time somebody miniaturised the idea although the consequences of leaky plumbing could be unpleasant. Electric cars? Where is the electricity going to be coming from and has that other great drawback been addressed, the time it takes to recharge the battery. A method to secure money transfer that is already in use is hardly tomorrows technology, and so on......
