Running on air
Why is everyone saying such mean things about this car? OK, so they say good things about the fact the AIRPod runs on compressed air. As they should – how could that be bad? But everyone's saying how ugly it is – or at best that it looks like it was designed by their four-year-old nephew. I disagree.
It is just possible that the four-year-old has great taste. Personally I'm sick of big tank-like cars and don't get a rush of pleasure at being seen in sports cars. Call me a girl (well, that would be pretty accurate), but I think the AIRPod is great. Like the Smart Car before it, and almost every other design for eco-friendly cars, it makes a virtue out of being almost microscopic.
Created by Luxembourgish company MDI, the AIRPod runs on compressed air which is stored at high pressure. Sure it's no beast in the power department, and it doesn't have tons of leg room (though it does fit four), but it's zero emission, is operated by joystick, and takes minutes to recharge. Go, little guy, go. RM
