interesting

i didn't know this existed

$$$ though compared to a cheap gas generator, especially when adding solar panels it comes to $1600

a cheap generator is $200

if money is not a factor, this is interesting as hell

One of the advantages of this is that you can bring it into your house and run a few devices during a blackout, safely.

If you want to use a gas generator to power stuff in your house, you need to run it outside to do it safely. So you are going to need to mount it, house it and wire it. Then, when there is a blackout, you're going to have to run around and disconnect any appliances you don't need; or, alternatively, get a bigger generator. And if you get a bigger one, at some point, you can't really fill it with jerry cans, so you're going to have to set up a storage tank. And you may have ordinances in your town that require all this to be inspected. So, not really so cheap.

For outdoor use, a gas generator is a cheap solution; but this is so much cleaner and easier.
