Is the Bloom Box Ready to Bloom?

I’m not sure what to make of the Bloom Box as seen on 60 Minutes. It looks like a great idea although I’m not expert enough to tell otherwise. The experts quoted above were unanimously unimpressed. The technology’s not new and significant cost barriers still exist which is why it will take 5-10 years before we ever see one for the home. So why all the hype now? Either I’m missing something or maybe they’re just looking for more money.

The buzz for their fuel cell is booming
With hope for clean energy looming.
But five to ten years
Before it appears?
This box is a long way from blooming.
