Time and the Associated Press are reporting a story about a Pakistani engineer who claims to have invented a water-fueled car. That would definitely be science fiction becoming science fact right before our eyes (if it’s true).
From the story:
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani officials who have failed for years to fix the country’s rampant energy shortages have latched on to a local engineer’s dubious claim to have invented a water-fueled car, sparking criticism from experts who bemoan what the episode says about the sorry state of the government.
Excitement over the supposed discovery has been fueled by sensationalist TV talk show hosts, who have hailed the middle-aged engineer, Agha Waqar Ahmed, as a national hero and gushed about the billions of dollars Pakistan could save on oil imports.
But while a water-fueled car would be cool (it’s not a freaking jet-pack people!), I can’t seem to get the sound of Hyde’s voice out of my head. (From That 70’s Show)
“I’m telling you. The government has a car that runs on water, man…”

What do you think? Water-fueled car yes or no?
