This is a great advance. As they say in the article, this is what Tesla had in mind. He got a bit ahead of himself though and tried to apply it on too large a scale. What's really amazing, and humbling at the same time, is that engineers are just now able to apply scientific principles that have been understood since the late 19th century to modern day problems such as the one described in the article. Electromagnetism is the most understood of the fundamental forces. Imagine centuries from now when we can harness the power of the subatomic forces and engineer around them. Now that will be impressive!
