The Whispering Wheel

This article is another of those stories about a promising and excellent, exciting alternative to the current motor vehicle engine. This time, it's a Dutch company that's created an in-wheel electric motor. Basically, the engine is in the wheels of the vehicle. In fact, the engine is the wheels of the vehicle. It's supposed to reduce vehicle emissions by no less than 50 percent, and vehicle noise by 90 percent. Another small engine is required to produce the electrical energy required to supply the wheel engines. Read more at the link, above.

I always get excited when I read about these types of potential advancements, but they hardly ever materialize in any practical way. Nonetheless, I'm hopeful that this will succeed.
