Nigerian engineering student takes Volkswagen Beetle and creates a fully renewable off-road vehicle
This is very cool . "Segun Oyeyiola an engineering senior at Nigeria's Obagemi Awolowo University spent a year retrofitting a Volkswagen Beetle into a wind and solar-powered car, partly made of free scrap parts donated by friends and family. Everything else cost under $6,000."
"Dr. John Preston, chair of McMaster University's engineering physics department and faculty advisor to the school's solar car team, says he's never seen anything like Oyeyiola's contraption, which also comes with a GPS app that monitors car health. "If you could find a way to use both wind and solar in the same vehicle, that would be a marvelous thing," he said. "Using wind and solar means you wouldn't have to drive just during daylight hours. If he has figured a way to do it, that would be quite remarkable."
