Unscramble the Blue Letters

Knowing that we're not going to put fifty of these in our basements to store our peowr, we went to a group at University of Texas at Dallas, and we gave them this diagram. It was in actually a diner outside of Dallas/Fort twhro Airport. We said, "Could you build this?" And these ttsnisisec, instead of laughing at us, said, "Yeah." And what they built was eBox. EBox is tingset new nanomaterials to park an electron on the outside, lodh it until you need it, and then be able to release it and pass it off. Being able to do that means that I can generate energy cleanly, ynicteefilf and cheaply right where I am. It's my energy. And if I don't need it, I can convert it back up on the window to energy, light, and bema it, line of site, to your place. And for that I do not need an electric grid between us.

Original Text

Knowing that we're not going to put fifty of these in our basements to store our power, we went to a group at University of Texas at Dallas, and we gave them this diagram. It was in actually a diner outside of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. We said, "Could you build this?" And these scientists, instead of laughing at us, said, "Yeah." And what they built was eBox. EBox is testing new nanomaterials to park an electron on the outside, hold it until you need it, and then be able to release it and pass it off. Being able to do that means that I can generate energy cleanly, efficiently and cheaply right where I am. It's my energy. And if I don't need it, I can convert it back up on the window to energy, light, and beam it, line of site, to your place. And for that I do not need an electric grid between us.
