I wouldn't hold my breath . . . .

Something not covered in the news release if efficiency:
nothing's free, so it must take more power (at the source) than is actually required by the device.
Given the current "green" environment and the cost of electric power, unless this thing can deliver efficiencies at the 98-99% level it makes little sense for anything other than very low power applications.
