The AirPod

With all the excitement about electric cars as they become mainstream (and available at a dealer near you) it's easy to forget about another alternative - compressed air.

This technology uses compressed air (hopefully compressed by electricity from renewable energy) to power pistons similar to those in a conventional engine. It's a nice little video (thanks Alistair for the link) - and if you look carefully (at around 2min 48sec) you'll see the car that i talked about back in 2007.
