I like the idea of going to work in an environmentally-sound vehicle — especially one that can get me a great workout! But this one, dubbed the Imagine LMV does bring to mind a certain Stone Age family who have been sporting this kind of ride for ages. Starting at $15,000, this human powered gem has you rowing your way to a greener earth. But instead of messing up your pedi, a la Wilma Flinstone, your upper body is what gets you moving.
However, other differences between this human-powered car and the Flinstone's hot rod are pretty futuristic. A standard electric/human-powered hybrid motor (recharged by you, of course) can take you up to 30 mph while you and your pals head off to the stone quarry, er, I mean work. Plus with add ons like an iPod adapter, navigation system, internet connectivity, and biometric devices (so you can see how hard you're rowing, natch) really does make it an eco-lover's dream! With the Imagine LMV hitting the streets just in time for Earth Day 2008, would this human-powered car be something that you would drive?
