You may remember the Swiss watchmaker Swatch from 1997 when they co-designed the hugely successful Smart car together with Daimler. Later they decided to pull out of the project and sold the shares in Smart to move on with what they did best – make superb watches.

Now, it seems that Swatch wants to get back into building microcars. According to an interview that Nick Hayek CEO of the company (and the son of the man who designed the Smart forTwo) gave to a Swiss newspaper NZZ, there is a working prototype of Swatch Belenos ELV2.

A Chance to Invest in Fuel Cell Technology

H2GOElectric Hydrogen Generator for Fuel Cell

Hydrogen is one of the cleanest fuels on earth. The easiest and safest way to apply hydrogen energy to motoring is to switch to fuel cell cars. Although Mercedes-Benz and some other mainstream manufacturers have intended to put fuel cell cars on the roads by 2015, the question is – where will the hydrogen come from?

It appears that a British company H2GOElectric Ltd has an answer; and you too can now take part by considering investing in this venture. They have developed a range of electrolytic hydrogen generators both for home and fleet use. The H2GOElectric generator makes pressurised hydrogen from

112 MPG on Pure Matter

Scientists often come across as eccentrics. Have they gone too far this time? Professor Gerardine Botte from the much-respected Ohio University is leading a strange study in possibilities to utilize urine in green motoring.

It might sound like a crazy idea but it actually makes perfect sense when you think about it. Urine is the cheapest possible (to date) source of hydrogen. If we had enough of freely available hydrogen, our motoring problems would be solved because hydrogen is the most widespread element on earth, it burns eagerly and produces water as a by-product.

It is such a shame to have such an enormous amount of fuel around without being able to use it. It is possible to
