This story caught my attention today. CNN.com highlighted a company that is set to produce the first air-powered car by 2010. The car runs on compressed air, which essentially gets over 100 mpg. According to the article, the technology has been created by a European firm, MDI. It recently gave it’s first license to use the technology in the US to a New York based company, Zero Pollution Motors.
This will no doubt start a heated debate about the possibility of further development of this and similar technologies. There are plenty of skeptics out there, and this type of idea is sure to cause a commotion. If, in fact, this creation comes to fruition, it would be one of the best solutions to date for the rising oil crisis. Very innovative indeed.
For more thoughts and ideas on innovation, please check out my new recommended reading section. I have started to assemble a collection of books that discuss, empower, and inspire innovators everywhere. It is small to start, and only includes books that I have personally read. If you have any suggestions on books that should be listed please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you and adding to the collection rapidly.
