Invented by Kehinde Durojaiye, this jet car is made out of waste products and works on both land and sea. Based in Lagos, Nigeria, the inventor recycled materials found in his local trash dump, including plastic, styrofoam and wood to create the eco-friendly vehicle. The aero-amphibious prototype is the fourth version he developed, and features a keyboard and desk chair. Durojaiye claims the jet car is capable of reaching 6 knots on water and has travelled 84 miles on road.
This car is an example of a sustainable transport option, especially in a city with significant traffic congestion. This invention is also a way to deal with wasteful consumption and shows how individuals can drive more sustainably.
