A Middle Tennessee State University professor invented this fairly simple way to turn your car into a plug-in hybrid, no matter what your car is. How exciting is it that you could be the world's first owner of a 1982 Yugo Hybrid?

Prof. Charles Perry basically just installs the same technology that is used to propel the Mars Curiosity Rover in each wheel of the car. Each wheel's motor makes an impressive 200 ft-lbs of torque, and the system should be available for under $3,000.
