Air Powered Bike

airpowered bike

Jem Stansfield, a former sheepherder and current rocket/scientist/inventor, took a couple of air canisters normally used by firefighters as breathing apparatuses and latched them onto his moped. Now, he’s got a functional air-powered bike that emits no carbon emissions.

How does it work? Two compressed air cylinders drive the pair of rotary air engines to propel the moped to a top speed of 18 mph for about 7 miles. After a quick and simple fill-up for air and it’s ready to go “fast” again.

  1. yes, but where does the compressed air come from??

    an air compressor, that runs on electricity,
    which is most likely produced in some way that has carbon emissions!

  2. There are many ways to generate compressed air without using electricity or fossil fuels. I am researching those options right now. I want to know how much PSI was required in the tanks to get the mileage described.

  3. Ha, I don’t agree with it all but nice none-the-less
