On the net there is a news circulating about “Personal” Nuclear reactor.

Toshiba MicroNuclear

I did not find any confirmation on Toshiba web site, but here are projected specs for Toshiba MicroNuclear:

Dimensions: 20×6 ft (1 foot = 0.3048 meters)

Power:  200 kilowatt

Security: fail-safe and totally automatic and will not overheat

Fuel: liquid lithium-6

Expected life: 40 years

Electricity cost: 5 c/ kW

Expected date: 2008

Price: ???????

Knowing price tag for current Nuclear reactors this may not fit in my budget for next year Christmas shopping, but it may be good solution for remote areas or as backup power source for data-centers.
