This car charges Segways

September 8, 2007

Dude you have to get this car.  It is so useful when I need to ride around on my Segway I keep it in this car and it stays charged.  So every time I park my car I get out pull my segway from the back of the trunk and ride around, it ensures the least work possible for me.  So I can work on my weight.


Engadget: FORD hydrogen car reaches speed of 200 miles and hour

August 16, 2007

Looks like minuscule RC cars aren’t the only alternatively powered vehicles trying to break 200 miles-per-hour, as Ford just became the “world’s first automaker to set a land speed record for a production-based fuel cell powered car.” The whip used to set the bar, of course, is none other than the Fusion Hydrogen 999, and it reportedly reached over 207 miles-per-hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah without using a drop of gas. Apparently, Ford is hoping that this showcase of speed will somehow translate into advancements that will help us common folk get to work and back sans gasoline, and while we’ve no idea when a fuel cell propelled Cobra will roll off the line, it did note that a number of fuel cell propelled Focus vehicles were still burning down the roads as part of an ongoing study.
