Japanese Company Invents Water Car

A Japanese company just invented a car that runs on water. Check it out:


Television Presenter: (Are you) tired of pumping expensive gasoline into your car? Well one Japanese company reveals an eco-friendly car that runs on water. Using the company’s generating system, water is converted into electrical power. Let’s take a look at this amazing development:

Female Narrator: All you need is a liter of water. Any kind of water to be exact. Whether it is river, rain, seawater or even Japanese tea. Genepax unveiled a car that runs on water in the western Japanese city of Osaka. They say it is an electric-powered car that runs solely on hydrogen dioxide (water).

Man: The main characteristic of this car is that no external input is needed. The car will continue to run as long as you have a bottle of water inside for you to add from time to time.

Narrator: According to Japanese broadcaster TV Tokyo, once the water is poured into a water tank at the back of the car, the newly invented energy generator takes out the hydrogen from the water, releases electrons and finally generates electric power.

Man: We highly recommend our system since it does not require you to build up an infrastructure to recharge your batteries, which is usually the case with most electric cars.

Narrator: According to Genepax one liter of water keeps the car running for about an hour at a speed of about eighty kilometers or fifty miles per hour. The company has just applied for a patent and is hoping to collaborate with Japanese automobile manufacturers to mass manufacture their invention in the very near future.

    Hi.
    I believe that all we do in order to save the enviroment starting with “no more air pollution” could save us many healthy enviromental years ahead. When I say “years ahead” I mean thousands of years, milleniums. But we have to think “how much water” would be needed in case most people decided to use this car?
    Then we would have another problem if that meant “too much water”.
    I may be not completely right and I really hope I’m not (completely right). Maybe I’ve missed some point.

    Faithfully yours.

    Hi,
    Of course , it is fantastic invention for electric power car, this car run on the water ,this car is that no external input is needed, this car does not need for expansive gasoline , so it will be save money and will be economic car , most of people can buy this car , it will be cheap car .
    This car is friendly for environment and it will reduces the pollution in the air.
    The idea is that energy generator takes out the hydrogen from the water release electrons and finnly generates electric power beside to it does not required you to build up infrastructure to recharge your batteries. And its speed is 80 kilometer or 50 miles per hour , it is not bad.
    I expected the acceptance for this car ( electric -power car ) .
    with my greets
    your sincere
