OK, they admit FutureCar made a mistake with the perpetual motion stuff A new agreement between Tata Motors and MDI bring the air-car closer to reality — Autoblog Green

What worries me is that Discovery Channel could even make such a mistake. No one caught that before the show was shot?

Here's something else I found by googling... my own thread on another forum. Yep, I was really pissed at Discovery. http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?p=23258568

However .. wouldn't this be considered non powered motor vehicles.. its not using a engine per say..its just kenitic energy..

Also as for the air tank rupturing , i read up on these the air tanks are carbon fiber and if they rupture they cant explode , just crack open and release the air.. may be loud as heck but not explosive..

You read pure BS about the safety of carbon fiber tanks. Only large factors of safety and rigorous inspection keep them safe, and they'd go up in a chain reaction if air cars were adjacent to each other.
