Look at this solar trike tear down the road

[Video Link] As soon as I get my hands on some quiodes I'll build myself one of these Solar Powered Warrior Tadpole Trikes, too!


  1. I don’t know if I buy this. I’d imagine that you’d never get enough power to pull that. Well, unless you coupled a phase inverter to the induction relay of each of the solar nacelles, that might work.

      1.  If I could get my hands on a decent flux capacitor, do you think I’d be fiddling around with solar cells?  I think hooking a Mr Fusion up to my trike would give me enough power, thank you very much.

      2. No good, the bilateral asymmetric osmotic pressure on the torsional capacitors  would shear them clean off! And let me tell you, nothing gets you laughed at more than suffering a trans-dermal torsional capacitor decoupling in the middle of the road. 

    1. But that, routed through the quiode network, would clearly overload the superconducting motor. If you modulated the phase variance through a subspace field dampener you might be able to compensate.

          1.  Clearly what’s needed here is to use the solar-panel-generated electricity to create plasma that’s fed via the EPS conduits to the verterium cortenide coils in the nacelles to generate the proper subspace field imbalance for forward motion, with part of the EPS flow redirected to the inertial dampeners and structural integrity field for those really sharp corners. Did all of you sleep through Commander Scott’s course at the Academy? I swear, you should all have become ship’s counselors instead.

    1.  I don’t see what’s wrong with that. The air molecules will totally stick to that longer. I guess some will stick to it perfectly, but at some point, there’ll be some that just sort of roll slowly along it, like those sticky toys you used to be able to get, and throw at windows.

      Physics. That’s totally how it works!

      1. carpet tape is all nice and sweet until it’s full of dust, and then what? Also, it limits radial motion of the air which in turn inhibits secondary flows, which means no proper corner separation, not lifting vortex, and you can’t properly go supersonic with that flat nose he’s got on the fan.
        This guy may have gotten lucky with a few cheap parts but I betcha in a few weeks that thing is gonna give him trouble.

        I’m still recommending getting a proper jet engine. might a bit heavier and louder but a lot more reliable, and it keeps cars at a distance if you’re riding in town traffic. If you’re one of those eco types, you can still feed it with biofuel, that’s solar power ftw.
