German Researchers Unveil Hydrogen Fuel Cell Powered Rickshaw

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) recently unveiled this concept hydrogen fuel cell powered rickshaw, further conmplicating the idea of a rickshaw. Dubbed the Hydrogenia, the four-wheeled ride is powered by a 250 watt fuel cell with a hydrogen tank installed behind the seat, giving it's rider two very green options for moving about. We're not entirely sure if we'd really consider this a greener alternative to the standard pedal-only rickshaw, but it sure is awesome to see hydrogen power being put to practical use.
