Finally! A new idea!

I spend a lot of time complaining about stuff. Since there's a finite amount of stuff in the world, I spend a lot of time complaining about the same things over and over again. One of my consistent complaints is that there are no new ideas, that we stopped inventing stuff back in the '50s. Yep, right around the same time time somebody figured out there was more money in treating diseases than curing them, we stopped coming up with inventions. Sure, there are better, faster, smaller (or bigger) phones, computers, televisions and kitchen appliances, but those are tweeks on old ideas. All of those things existed before and now we spend our resources maintaining their viability rather than coming up with The Next Thing. So while we have smaller phones with incredible computing power, we still drive around on the remains of used dinosaurs. That's why we haven't had a The Next Thing in a long time. Until now. Check this out...
All right, technically this isn't a new new idea. Roads have been around for a long, long time. But not like this! THIS can, could and should be The Next Thing! I won't go over all the positive benefits because the video does that just fine. However, I dare someone to try to come up with a reasonable argument for why this is not an absurdly great idea.
