Electro-Pulse Your Icy Car

New Hampshire firm Ice Engineering, LLC has developed electro-pulse deicing that uses a controlled electrical current to quickly melt ice. The electric pulse melts ice at its attachment to the object allowing the ice to fall off. Right now the technology is being used on bridges and buildings but it could be coming to your windshield soon.
