This Incredulously Green Innovation May Seem Fart-Fetched

Every once in a while, an invention comes along that can make the world somehow seem more magically hilarious; these bovine methane backpacks are a prime example.

Designed by scientists from Argentina's National Institute for Agricultural Technology, these bovine methane backpacks are comically ingenious but scientifically sound gadgets that collect methane from cows. Considering the fact that a single cow can pump out 800-1,000 liters of emissions every single day, the idea of combining this with a bit of functional eco fashion doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

As for what color these world-saving bovine methane backpacks should be, would any other color than hot pink do? I think not.
