【由空气供电的单人车辆,价格低廉】一群埃及学生设计并制造了氧气动力的单人车辆原型,作为毕业设计,旨在以此对抗不断上涨的能源价格,并且提倡清洁能源。该车辆可达到40公里/小时,一次加氧可行驶30公里,只需1000美元即可建造。

The car powered by AIR! Egyptian students have designed an incredible one-person go-kart that runs on compressed oxygen and has a top speed of 25mph

  • Undergraduate students designed and built the prototype one-person vehicle
  • The oxygen-powered go-kart vehicle costs just £780 to build
  • Students who designed the car are from Helwan University, outside of Cairo
  • It comes as Egypt pushes ahead with painful economic reforms
  • These measures are tied to a three-year $12 billion (£9bn) IMF loan programme 

A group of Egyptian students have built a one-person vehicle designed to battle rising energy prices and promote clean energy by running on nothing but air.

The undergraduate students created the go-kart as part of their graduation project.

According to the creators, the vehicle can hit 25 mph (40km/h) and has a range of 19 miles (30km) before it needs to be refuelled with more compressed oxygen.

However, the students are sure they will eventually get the vehicle to top 62 mph (100km/h) and run for 62 miles (100 kilometres) with future prototypes.

The vehicle only costs some 18,000 Egyptian pounds (£780/ $1,000) to build.

The undergraduates who built the machine are studying at Helwan University, found just outside Cairo.

'The operational cost of the vehicle... will be almost nothing,' said Mahmoud Yasser, a student who helped design it.

'You are basically using compressed air. You are not paying for fuel and also you do not need cooling,' he said.

The team is now looking to raise funding to expand the project and mass produce the vehicles.

They believe they can eventually get the vehicles to top 62mph (100km/h) an hour and run for 62 miles (100 kilometres) before needing to come up for more air.

The go-kart-like vehicle comes as Egypt pushes ahead with painful economic reforms that include deep cuts to energy subsidies.

These measures are tied to a three-year $12 billion (£9bn) IMF loan programme it began in late 2016.

Last month Segway also made a steerable go-kart.

Ninebot, the parent company of Segway, is expected to roll out a kit that attaches to its hoverboard model, the miniPro, according to Abacus News , which spotted the report on Chinese news site Weibo.

The kit retrofits seats, a steering wheel and a front bumper, as well as rear and front wheels onto the Segway.

The miniPro is a miniature version of the original, upright Segway, that's similar to a hoverboard, but adds a padded steering stick in the middle of the device to allow for easier maneuvering.

Last month Segway also made a steerable go-kart. Promotional images of the go-kart show a father and son riding side by side, suggesting that the steering wheel and seat can be adjusted based on the rider's needs

Segway has yet to comment on the product, beyond sharing some promotional images on its Weibo site.

It comes about a month after Segway released a pair of self-balancing e-skates.
