What do you think? Are air-powered cars the vehicles of the future?
YouI've driven a car for years. You know: noise, polution, speed, convenience, traffic jams!
A couple of years ago I called for a taxi. A hybrid van appeared to take me to the airport in San Francisco. It was a great ride, smooth and silent. The next year I rented a hybrid. It was great. We went over the mountains, through the desert. The only PROBLEM was that it didn't make noise. Animals, cyclists, pedestrians, other motorists couldn't hear the car and were oblivious to our passing by, or trying to pass. That would by my complaint about the hybrids: they can sneak up on you!
And the next step. Jules Verne predicted that cars would some day run on air. And now we have cars fueled on compressed air. It costs nothing. Air is free! It's clean. It doesn't use combustion.
The air-powered cars are strong, light weight and practical. They're being developed, they're more than on the drawing board, they're out there.
What do you think? Is the future here?
