Israeli start-up Phinergy presents working prototype "air car" while Abe shows up in Israel with 100 Japanese business/govt. leaders

New aluminum battery allows car to run on air and water.

A little digression into another aspect of auto safety--that is, how to keep the earth and its people safe from auto-generated pollution.

Bloomberg exclusive on Israel-invented "air car"

 A car that runs on water and air — 

the future of transportation in an aluminum-air battery from Israeli company Phinergy. 

Could be on market in 2017.

Fill-up? with water! Sounds like just another wild idea. But this car is driveable already. 

To me, it sounds like a much better idea than Toyota's hydrogen vehicles.

Meanwhile, Japan's PM Shinzo Abe arrived in Israel yesterday as Japan gears up for more commercial ties to Israel, now that we have discovered trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and have invented lots of great high-tech stuff. This air car is just one example.

For its part, Israel also needs to boost trade with Asia on account of the Islamization of Europe, so it seems likely that we will hear more about Israel-Japan tech cooperation and business deals going forward.
