The Air Powered Car

“”The MiniC.A.T is a simple, light urban car, with a tubular chassis that is glued not welded and a body of fibreglass. The heart of the electronic and communication system on the car is a computer offering an array of information reports that extends well beyond the speed of the vehicle, and is built to integrate with external systems and almost anything you could dream of, starting with voice recognition, internet connectivity, GSM telephone connectivity, a GPS guidance system, fleet management systems, emergency systems, and of course every form of digital entertainment. The engine is fascinating, as is and the revolutionary electrical system that uses just one cable and so is the vehicle’s wireless control system. Microcontrollers are used in every device in the car, so one tiny radio transmitter sends instructions to the lights, indicators etc…….”” –

More info from the green vehicle company MDI and its inventor, Guy Negre, and video from Air Car from France.

And it reminded me about the cool “Air Jammer” toy car too. :)

We're still waiting for the car.

Waiting since MDI announced in 2000 that production would start in 2001.

Always "next year" while continuing to raise additional investment money.
