Picture of the Day - March 25, 2011

Although the technology has not yet been proven, the Chinese Leaf car is dubbed as a "carbon negative" vehicle that emits oxygen into the air, as water vapor, as it drives. The roof, which is shaped like a leaf and gives the car it's name, is made of photvoltaic cells that take in energy from the sun. The wheel turbines generate energy as they spin when the car is moving, and work best when the car is going downhill. It's on display at the Chinese Pavilion in Shanghai
at the site of the 2010 World Expo.

  1. I visited Shanghai last summer, and I loved it. While we were there, we set off fireworks in the middle of the Financial District, it was soooo much fun! The vid is on YouTube, I'll link it here so you can see it. It's amazing what you can do over there that you wouldn't get away with anywhere else in the world! We had a great time :)
