Students develop one-passenger vehicle that runs on air

A team of Egyptian college students has designed a vehicle that is powered solely on oxygen. The current prototype can transport one person at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour (40 kph) and make it almost 20 miles without needed a refuel, but the engineers plan on developing the vehicle further so it can push at least 62 mph (100 kph)—and travel 62 miles on a canister of oxygen. In addition to running on one of the most common substances found on Earth, the go-kart-like vehicle only…
