Twitter-powered electric car

Well, it’s not really powered by Twitter, as such. But it uses Facebooks likes and retweets to send the signal to continue. An interesting experiment, brought to my attention by Kerry Kuhn in the inbox:

“Converting old gas-powered cars to run on electricity has become easy enough that Minddrive, a Kansas City non-profit, has made such conversions part of an after-school education program for inner-city teen-agers. For this year’s project, Minddrive decided to set a higher bar by challenging the students to build a car powered by tweets and Facebook posts.”
