Future Vehicle: Horse Powered Van

Oh my god....they aren't kidding. I thought it had to be a joke...but is not. "Naturmobil, A Gift of Science to cialis in spain Nature" far sounds very EcoGeeky. Indeed, the Naturmobil is 100% carbon neutral, can travel at speeds of up to....well, they can't really say, and has a horse in it.

Yes, that's right...the wave of the future, a horse-powered vehicle. The horse walks on the treadmill (presumably toward an ever-out-of-reach carrot) and the treadmill charges some batteries, which then power the car.

It's a Photoshopped Horse
written by Kevin Miller, October 09, 2007
