Water Powered Vehicles

I guess many of you have heard about vehicles run by water, i also know that many of you have thought that this is confined to a concept and dosent work in real time….but if you go through this article u will be convinced to accept that it is true….

Yes, you can run your car on water. All it takes is to build a “water-burning hybrid” is the installation of a simple, often home-made electrolysis cell under the hood of your vehicle. The key is to take electricity from the car’s electrical system to electrolyze water into a gaseous mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, often referred to as Brown’s Gas or HHO or oxyhydrogen. Typically, the mixture is in a ratio of 2:1 hydrogen atoms to oxygen atoms. This is then immediately piped into the intake manifold to replace some of the expensive gasoline you’ve been paying through the nose for these last couple of months. These simple “kits” will increase your fuel economy and decrease your bills and dependence on foreign petroleum by anywhere from 15 to 300 percent.

Benefits

If water cars could be developed and used by every person then we would have no need to have for gas stations, oil refineries and tankers. There would be no much more require for drilling for oil. The corner gas station would be a distant memory. In addition, the Ozone layer would return to pre-industrial conditions with out any holes and the smog would disappear. Our environment would be a lot cleaner.

Water cars are cheaper. Water costs a lot less than gasoline. And it is quite effortless to get water to fill up your car.

Water cars are significantly better for the environment as they create no emissions. As a result they will not contribute to global warming.

Water is always being produced. It is very unlikely the earth will ever run out of water. And making use of a water-powered vehicle it may support the environment. Water cars, using a procedure known as electrolysis, send oxygen into the atmosphere. The oxygen can bind with hydrogen in the atmosphere to item water in the form of rain and snow.

Disadvantages

Water cars, if they came on the market, would be extremely costly as they cost a lot to generate. Even so, there are developers working to make a less expensive vehicle.

The water cars that are becoming developed these days still use what is called brown gas and it is mixed with water utilizing a approach referred to as electrolysis to produce power for the car. So this sort of water card would still need gasoline. Even so a lot much less gas would be required and it would not have to be as refined to do its job.

There are some skeptics that say the concept of a water vehicle is one large scam and is an impossibility. Only time will tell as there are folks that believe in this procedure and are diligently working to create an powerful and reasonably priced water powered vehicle.

Water cars may well still a dream of the future. However, if they do come to fruition, these amazing low pollution vehicles will be the answer to high gas and oil costs. They will really contribute to the well being of our environment.

These days however we can only rely on conservative driving to get us where we want to go. Or, better however the foot-powered bicycle is a excellent alternative to save on gas and avoid pollution or look to public transportation and shoe leather as alternate means of transportation until the water car is ready for the market.

Amphibian Technology

Many of us have heard about Amphibian animals like Frog,Crocodile etc which can live both on Land and Water….

Technology has risen up to such an extent where even a same Vehicles Can also travel both on Water and Land….So here comes the AMPHIBIAN TECHNOLOGY

We have 3 varieties the Aquada ,the Humdinga , the Quadski….

 

The Aquada

 

The Aquada is a revolutionary showcase of High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology.

This radical new breed of vehicle has been precision engineered to the most exacting standards. It has undergone an extensive safety testing programme and complies with appropriate marine and road safety regulations.

Entry to the water is via beach, boat ramp, slipway or directly from the water’s edge. Once afloat, the transition from road vehicle to High Speed Amphibian (HSA) is effortlessly achieved.

Simply press a button and drive into the water. The wheels automatically rise and as you press the accelerator nearly a ton of thrust pushes the Aquada onto the plane. The whole process takes less than 12 seconds. The Aquada can plane at over 30mph.

Powerful enough to tow a water-skier and with a style and class of its own, the Gibbs Aquada is the perfect leisure vehicle. It combines the thrill of an open top car with the sheer exhilaration experienced in a high performance speedboat.

The Aquada is the new name for freedom!

 

The Humdinga

 

Although the new application utilizes the same patented HSA technological platform as the Aquada, it shares no common component parts or systems with its predecessor. It has been designed specifically to access remote and hostile terrain. The Humdinga can comfortably transport five people complete with luggage/supplies on at least twice as much of the world’s surface as previous vehicles.

The Humdinga illustrates the scalability and versatility of HSA technology. HSA Technology can make vehicles ranging from passenger cars to SUVs to buses and trucks High Speed Amphibians.

The Humdinga transforms from land to water mode at a touch of a button. The wheels retract, the power train switches from the wheels to a jet propulsion system and the vehicle is in amphibious mode. In just a few seconds the driver is planing at a speed of forty miles per hour.

“This 4WD HSA demonstrates that the technology is adaptable for a whole range of applications. It took us 8 years, a million man-hours and tens of millions of pounds to develop HSA technology. With this latest vehicle, I’m sure that the technology’s potential is clear for all to see.”, comments Alan Gibbs, founder of Gibbs Technologies.

On land the Humdinga can accelerate from 0-60 in 9.2 seconds and on water can reach the ‘plane’ in less than 10 seconds. It has a curb weight of 2000kg, has all wheel independent air suspension and runs on regular unleaded petrol. The vehicle is 5400mm in length, 1850mm in height and 2000mm in width.

 

The Quadski

 

Gibbs Technologies, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed personal sports amphibian – Quadski.

Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.

Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of Gibbs Technologies said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.

“I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”
