Wind or tire powered car Printer Friendly Version
A car that is windpowered. A small wind turbin on the top or even underneath the car, maybe even in the front behind the grill. Cars are always producing wind. Maybe even a car that could be regenerated just by the spin of the tires. Of course their should be a battery that can be charged at home, or even by solar. this is such a great idea, and could easily be added on to cars.
Reward: getting the reward for free, or just let everyone know i was the first to have the idea

Cars that run on wind power Printer Friendly Version
I am not a scientist or even an inventor but I was thinking, wouldn't it be great if we could harness the wind that a vehicle creates to power it?
A completely renewable power source for motorized travel that doesn't cost a penny and would never run out. Of course the vehicle would need some kind of power source to start moving but if I am correct the power source could be recharged by the wind after the vehicle picked up speed. I believe the technology would be something similar to the wind turbines that currently capture wind energy used to supplement power consumption.
Reward: If a vehicle like this was every created, I would love to be one of the first owners, free of charge of course. Do you know how much money I would save in Gas?

United States Printer Friendly Version
Converting present gasoline engines to work on steam, using a combination of either electrical or propane to make the steam.
Engines presently are 4 cycle. To convert to steam would require replacing the 4 cycle camshaft to 2 cycle. Then removing the carburator and intake and exhaust manafolds, and using them to connect the steam to the intake manafold and the radiator to the exaust manafold, where the steam would be cooled to convert to water. The water, being cooled to just below the boiling point would then be connected to the steam generator to be fed to the intake manafold. The cars would need to have the gas tank replaced with a propane tank, and also be equipted with batteries enought to drive normal distance, being rechargeabe by charging overnight at home, but using propane to suplimite the batteries on long trips.
Of course this idea would also work on replacement motors. But on present motors, the alternators would also be replacing part of the energy to make the steam. If the motor industry switched to steam, the world would no longer depent on oir at $147 a barrol, and all the greedy ones running up the price of oil would see their high price bubble collepse! This idea is completely free! I wish you success in becoming very rich with you invention!
Reward: no reward wanted. Just would like to see it done.
