This could be big? Overnight, it’s become huge for MTSU engineering technology professor Dr. Charles Perry.

Television journalist Bill Weir and the ABC News/Yahoo! News “This Could Be Big” online collaboration has rocketed interest in Perry’s plug-in hybrid retrofit kit motor project into a new orbit.

The Sept. 6 “This Could Be Big” posting at the ABC News/Yahoo! News page had already generated more than 1,300 comments from online viewers before noon EDT today. (You can read the post by clicking on the graphic at right.)

Perry and a student-centered five-member team saw gas mileage increase anywhere from 50 to 100 percent on a 1994 Honda station wagon equipped with laboratory prototype plug-in hybrid capability.

This innovation is taking place right here in Middle Tennessee folks!
