In Belgrade, Anton Peterka and his son Igor have created a car powered by wood. Constructing a mechanism in and around a '85 Yugo, they are able to use an old process based on incomplete combustion of wood to drive their car up to 85 km/h. Although the exhaust fumes are probably less poisonous and its cost much lower than conventional driving using gasoline, I don't want to suggest everybody starts doing this.! Nevertheless a beautiful story.!
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
