Design competition: hybridize the Tuk Tuk (auto Rickshaw)

Just spotted this yesterday. Sharpen your pencils...

Quote:
The Hybrid Auto Rickshaw project is a project where students of technical and business studies will battle each other to design the cleanest, cheapest and most practical upgrade kit for existing auto rickshaws.


Quote:
If you are selected as a Battle team member, a trip to India is part of the deal! You can also win a CO2 neutral trip to India by becoming the most active and innovative volunteer, intern or ambassador for the Hybrid Auto Rickshaw project!
