i find these 3 comments from the article interesting.
This was on the history channel about a month ago. What this report didn't mention (that the history channel did) is that the designers are working on a air compressor that runs off compressed air, but they don't have a working one small enough to go into the car.
A wonderful development though it is over 100 years old. Several years ago, I came across an old "Scientific American" magazine dating from the 1880's. In it was featured a compressed air trolly street car. The vehicle used tanks of compressed air. The trollies could propel themselves for a day's service on a tank of air. It could be re-charged at the end stations also. The only downside to this was the compressed air, when expanded from the tank line into the compression cylender to drive the piston, would freeze up the nozzles. But that was a minor problem for todays' technology to resolve. Internal combustion must be abandoned. The corporates must be destroyed. The American Corpocracy has lived too long. Bicycles and compressed air driven vehicles should be the dominant vehicles today.
