There Has to Be a Quicker Way to Get Around the UAE, Right?

I'm sure many are impressed by this UAE inventor who's about to travel 200 miles across the desert in a solar-powered wheelchair. Me? Nah. When he straps a 1000 MPH rocket on the back of that, then I'll be impressed.

OK, OK. Fine. Travelling at 12 MPH across all seven emirates and breaking obscure world records over a period of 11 days in some hot-ass weather and breaking obscure world records is pretty rugged, especially when it's totally carbon-neutral. But next time, this thing better be powered by cold fusion and brainwaves. [Treehugger via Pop Sci]
