Ricardo Azevedo, a public officer who lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has been getting a lot of attention for an invention that he came up with on his own – a motorbike that runs only on water. The bike, called T Power H20, can travel up to 310 miles, or nearly 500 kilometers, on a single liter of water.
In a video that was recently released, Ricardo can be seen drinking from a bottle of water before pouring it into his tank, proving that his bike does indeed run on water. Incredibly enough, clean water is optional. You can even use polluted river water to run the bike.
T Power H20 uses an external car battery to produce electricity and separate hydrogen from oxygen.
“The advantage of this motorcycle, which works with the hydrogen that comes from the water, is that the result that comes of the exhaust is water vapor,” says Azevedo. “This is different from gasoline, the result of which is carbon monoxide.”
