With gas prices going out of control and everyone commuting a long trip to work, we need alternative fuel sources. My wife shared an article with me about the MiniCat. Seems like a pretty cool idea but will be hard to make happen with the oil companies being in complete control over prices and not letting people develop new ideas. Well, luckily for the rest of us people are continuing to develop unique, efficient ways to drive a car.

Most people would say this car doesn’t have enough power, maxing out at 70mph, but where do you drive that the speed limit is over that? I don’t care for an engine that can rev up and sound loud, or that I can swerve around other cars and dominate the road. I think power in a car is something that is overrated and is just wasting more gas than we need to. I would be perfectly happy with driving a car that gets me to where I need to go and doesn’t cost me more than $2 to fill it up every 125 miles.

It may not be the prettiest design yet, but I’m also fine with driving a car that looks geeky and is small. Just equip it with iPod compatibility, a good sound system, and good crash test rating and I’m all for it.

You can read more about it elsewhere, I’m just excited to see new intuitive ideas about car. I’m just waiting for this years WWDC for Steve Jobs to announce the iCar. Phone, car, music, gps, wifi internet, rent movies, tv shows, buy music, tweet, blog, take pictures, stream live video, etc. I’m guessing there will be an iCar by 2015?

Steve Jobs You can do it!
