Genepax HQ (TGW) – Japanese company Genepax today unveiled its car that, they claim, runs on nothing but water.
Water is poured into the tank, and an energy generator in the car takes hydrogen from the water releasing electrons, that power the car. “No external input is needed,” said a company representative.
According to Genepax, a liter of water will keep the car going at 80 kilometers per hour for an hour. The company hopes to go in to mass production with a Japanese manufacturer soon.
However, the car appears to violate the First Law of Thermodynamics. Energy must be supplied to break the water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce the hydrogen fuel for the fuel cell. Oxidizing the hydrogen within the fuel cell can at best produce only as much energy as it took to break apart the water in the first place, leaving no energy left to power the car. Yet the company claims that water is all that is needed to make the car go. (Wikipedia)
