 Cornell's Fuel Cell Institute brought advanced hydrogen fuel-cell cars to Ithaca for a preview of the technology, and to help encourage adoption.  The event featured Toyota, GM and Mercedes-Benz.  The fuel cell technology for GM's car was developed in Upstate New York.  Developers said that within five years the technology should be advanced to the stage that it will be commercially and financially viable.  For more info on Cornell's work in fuel cell technology:
