A team at the Club Auto Sport in Silicon Valley are working on a compressed air car, where it will use an updated version of a compressed air powerplant vehicle that hails way back from 1932. This updated vehicle will rely on air-bearing turbochargers to create mechanical energy, where the former runs on cold compressed air with the powerplant using “super-capacitors, earth friendly recyclable batteries, solar power, magnetic motors and magnetic generators to compress entrained ambient air.” Interestingly enough, the technology involved will also boast “air bearings, capable of obtaining revolutions as high as one million RPM.” Will such a vehicle be commercially viable in the near future?
