Meet the Bloom Box

Josh Lowensohn , Michelle Meyers

Silicon Valley-based Bloom Energy unveiled its Bloom Energy server, or "Bloom box," Wednesday morning, which it says will deliver ample amounts of power in a small package--and change people`s dependency on traditional power grids.

Here, you can see one being installed.

While not available to consumers just yet, Bloom Energy held its press conference mostly to announce that its technology is indeed viable, and that it is currently beta testing it with a number of large companies including Google, Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, and Cox.

Going forward, Bloom plans to bring the technology into people`s homes, and eventually mix it with other types of green power technology, such as solar, in order to create a new type of power grid.
