With all the talk about alternate fuel cars, one technology you hear little about is the compressed air engine. Toyota wants top change that, so they built a car that could break 80-mph running on nothing but a bunch of hot air.

The Ku:Rin uses what is essentially an air conditioner compressor operating in reverse to provide power, and while the 80.3-mph top speed sounds good, the paltry two mile range isn’t going to cut it in the real world. DVICE
