The desert would be a lot quieter and cleaner if everyone was riding around in the Oasis electric dune buggy. Designer Shane Korthuis has conceptualized an eco-friendly dune buggy with a 28-inch ground clearance that runs solely off of electricity.
I grew up in a town filled with desert rats, and I can assure you that everything they brought to the desert was powered either by gas, Coors Light or a combination of both. The Oasis electric dune buggy would help clean up the air of the desert and reduce noise pollution, a seemingly insignificant form of pollution that is actually very harmful to animals. I doubt I'll be getting out to the desert anytime soon, but hopefully when I do make it out, I'll see more than a few of Shane Korthuis' eco-buggies tearing up and down the dunes.
