    mmmmmmmm....should I invest in this technology or manufacture a wood cabinet incubator???? I'm still interested in learning more...brinsea products do look well built....so their research must be on the up and up. I would like a copy of the prof. from NY to read.

    No one is going to spend this much to hatch a couple of dozen chicken eggs.

    Not all eggs are so cheap though. Brinsea works closely with a lots of zoos and breeding programs where the eggs may cost many hundreds of dollars each, or simply be irreplaceable. They need every egg to hatch.

    I just thought it worth sharing. It's like Formula 1 Motor Racing. What they are doing now, we get on our cars in 10 years.​

    The science behind it is interesting...the contact radiation. Sounds like the electric skillit isn't just a kitchen counter idea anymore.
    Twigg, I admire your foreward thinking positive attitude. Maybe ten years from now we can all try one out!
