New Slovak trailer

Seems there's not too much new under the sun. The Iowa based firms of wincharger and wind power were making wind powered chargers back in the 20s. They were used to power farm electrical systems and to charge car batteries etc. A good friend of mine has one that was made in Newton, Iowa before the war. WWII. The final tie together is that my friends last name is Votroubek , very Czech, Slovak, Bohemian, Moravian or whatever. My home town of Cedar Rapids is home of the National Czech and Slovak Museum. Worth the visit if you ever get out this way. Vitame' Vas'. Czech for "We welcome you".

It's interesting that although it has been in design for seven years, and a prototype exists, they can only show computer renderings - no real unit. It's also interesting that something the size of an Escape 17' weighs - without any running gear (axle, brakes, wheels, tires, tongue, coupler) - almost as much empty as the roadworthy Escape is allowed to weigh fully loaded with half a ton of water and cargo.

Let's hope they can eventually actually build something of value. They're not there yet...

No rain, no water, no black and grey disposal, no wheels. It's green.
Wait, it's white. Why are you so negative?

It looks like something you'd see in an old Popular Science mag. "Pod of the future" or something. Or, the promotional hype from a company trying to get people to invest in them.

ETI is missing out on a possible profit center. They should emulate them. Oh, you want your pod to be mobile, for a few extra thousand you can buy the wheel option.
