7. I hesitate to endorse technologies that appear to defy laws of physics.

 

Every year or so, since DU began, somebody posts a review of the Air Car, which runs on ... you guessed it -- air! Here's an article from 2008. But it's always around. Some simple math shows that it won't go more than five miles on compressed air. There are limits to how much you can compress air. (Maybe a golf cart?)

This solar hypothesis rings as unlikely to be true. If it is, it should be published. But it's unprotected. If he applies for a patent, he will be opposed by oil/energy companies. It's a Catch-22, or something.

But first we need some verification.
