Compressed Air Car, could this be . . .

Postby Mike » Thu Aug 14, 2008 9:08 am

Now this has potential, I worried about the tank for the compressed air but they've got that figured out. Takes about $3 of electricity to fill the tanks with compressed air in the prototypes and they can go about 200km. A newer version will be hybrid where an additional gas tank will fuel the mechanism to simply recharge the compressed air on the go. They say one tank of gas to go from LA to NY, 4500 miles. Why don't we hear about this in the mainstream media ?

Check out the air car !

the 'mainstream' media is just a big conglomerate-owned miasma of information tossed into the air, and, if you're lucky enough to be nearby, you just might see things like this, and many other variations, throughout the years.
problem is, once any neat idea gets hold, one of the other big conglomerates (say big oil or the car manufacturers) has a golf game with the media conglomerate...and the whole thing gets lost, rather than played up.

unless, of course, there is $$ (esp. big $$) to be made RIGHT NOW (kinda like all this blah-blah-blah about drilling in protected areas: all that'll do is pad the pockets of big oil, and not lower, or lessen our dependence one iota)...all the stories like this end up getting lost in mists of time

then there is the very famous story about this guy from kansas, who, along with his son and some friends, created a way for big old gas guzzlers to get 50-100 mpg...way back in the '80's: he took the idea to detroit...and...well...

look at what neil young is doing...and that is part of a challenge that many others are deeply involved in: kinda like the multi-$$ challenge for independent space travel richard branson is involved in: you'll hear bits and pieces here and there...and most of this type of thing has made it to the 'mainstream' well more than once in a while...

then, there is that guy who created, supposedly, a perpetual motion device: he and the gizmo where on Johnny Carsons' show several times...but...where is that..??
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be need to be sad...
