    Interesting smile http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/08/08/air.car/index.html combine it with a high powered compressor and you'd never have to worry about pulling into a service station to fill up. Of course then you'd need batteries to recharge the compressor.

    Wow. That is completely awesome. I'd rather spend my money recharging the battery's every day then on these high gas prices. Its about time we switch over, these prices are getting ridiculous.

    Compressed air is a pretty amazing way to do alot of things. You can use pneumatics to power just about anything if you have enough pressure.

    I wish I could find the link to the older "Air Car" design that was 100% pneumatic. I think I ran across it on wiki... I know they have a thing on there about the nitrogen powered car. That was pretty cool too.

    I think this is great too; I'm a big fan of alternatives to fossil fuels. Please note, though, that this does not run purely on air. To achieve speeds above 35 miles per hour, a fuel source is needed to heat the air. Still, it's likely to make an impact.
