Eco Factor: Hi-tech bus powered by hydrogen fuel cell.
Apart from all the machines coming to make our lives easy, the future still seems to make us more and more busy in our daily routines. While we all will get more and more involved in our busy schedules, we will have to cut down on the time we spend in relaxing and other entertainment. Engin Kapkin is one such designer who manages to provide us entertainment in a bus that is powered by hydrogen fuel cells.
The bus that comes with a complete onboard theater and theatrical seating is powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Water that is generated in the process is used for cooling the bus, providing an easily accessible and energy efficient air conditioning system. The fuel cells in the bus will be backed up with lithium-ion batteries that will be charged by regenerative braking.
The Dark Side:
The bus can be great for long distance travel, but it will not do much good if used by people for routine travel.
