The "Flintstones" Car That You Pedal Is Now Here
A Dutch engineering company just created a car that you move with your feet. Yes . . . like in "The Flintstones".
The big difference is that you don't have to run on the ground to make the car move . . . instead of a gas pedal, it's got a set of bicycle pedals. And to make the car go, you've gotta use 'em.
You don't use your feet to brake though, you use a hand brake on the steering wheel . . . kind of like how the brake on a bike works.
The people who created the car say you could burn 300 calories during your half-hour commute.
So when will we get these cars? That's not clear. They have an international patent on it, so we COULD see it over here at some point, but they're planning to start by selling it in the Netherlands.
