I knew I should have patented that shit when I thought of it. :P


Someone else just figured out that you can slap a model jet turbine onto a car and use it to recharge the batteries.

It's a Jetcat marine made for model boats, BTW. 10 HP from a turbine smaller than your head. (Yeah, I know what you're thinking. "10 HP, that's not very much." FYI, 1 HP = ~746 watts. That little thing throws down almost seven thousand five hundred watts.)
