The HumanCar® Changes Transportation – The Affirmation Spot for Thursday October 9, 2008

Today’s affirmation is:

“I believe wholeheartedly that I am part of the solution in my life and in my world.”

“Row, row, row your car gently down the road?” That’s the idea behind The HumanCar®. The vehicle is the brainchild of inventors Charles and Chuck Greenwood. It demonstrates how vision and ingenuity can create things the established order says are not possible.

Their invention comes against the backdrop of the current US presidential campaign where several candidates John McCain (R), Barack Obama (D), Ralph Nader (I), and Bob Barr (L), are championing “Energy Independence” or reform in one form or another.

Of course, we’ve heard this all before. For decades, we’ve been waiting for Detroit and the oil companies to change transportation. Instead, they have resisted, delayed, and claimed that there just are not feasible alternatives. We’ve been listening to that talk in Washington for decades too.

The Greenwoods prove that human innovation still comes from the grassroots! Thankfully, there are start-up companies – like HumanCar – that are not waiting for the fossil fuel monopoly to decide the time for change has come.

I don’t know about you, but the people in the picture seem to be having a good time. Nothing is more inspiring than to see an inventor meld human genius and creativity to develop something imminently useful and necessary.

Not every new car technology is everyone’s cup of tea. This vehicle is definitely for those in shape or wanting to get into shape. HumanCar® runs on a combination of human and electrical power. When the humans get tired of rowing the car runs on an electric motor. According to a recent CNN report, the car reaches speeds of 60 mph (97 Kph). However, some Internet test drivers claim they attained speeds exceeding 80 mph (128 Kph).

The car’s design relies on streetcar racing vehicles that date back to the 1950s. It’s a great multitasking machine allowing you to travel and get your daily workout at the same time. HumanCar® allows you to choose your own body style.

Of course, as with any new technology or idea, there are challenges to overcome. Nonetheless, it is more evidence that innovation is the key to solving our common issues.

Following is a brief YouTube video displaying the car. I believe this video was put out by the company. CNN also ran a recent story on HumanCar®.

These kinds of innovations inspire all of us to think of new ways to better our lives and our world.

Stay inspired!
