Default wow this is crazy

http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/pos...r_by_2010.html



an air car
and its coming to market soon
this is the tec we need
this is going to save the earth
we dont need cars that run on hydrogen
we need air cars with a back up battery if you run out of air
this might just stop global warming if its used effectively in cars

they might run on air, but like with cars that run on compressed air, electricity etc its going to take alot of work for people to be convinced to buy one, let alone actually likethe cars

How are you going to get the electricity to power the pumps to compress the air? Coal probably.

What we need is fusion.

Also, the 2 cylinder version of this would be sooo slow.

What we need is biofuel. And what do they mean, air? Oxygen? C02?

nah, the car has carbon-fibre tanks that store compressed air that you would (supposedly) get from garages etc, and basiclly you just hook it up to an outlet, fill the tank and drive off - but it has a small bettery compressor incase of emergency heh

ugh, biofuels are the worst things ever - they raise crop prices, so poorer countried cant afford their food, they encourage de-forestations to make room for crops and they still pollute!

Instead of combustion powering the engine, compressed air moves the pistons. Just watch the video...

I watched the video, it said there would be 2, 4, and 6 cylinder versions.

No, we need someone to figure out how to use fusion. It's what powers the sun. Current nuclear power plants use fission. That produces large amounts of radioactive waste though. Fusion produces much, much more energy, with much, much less waste.
