You know what sounded too good to be true 100 years ago? A hand held light bulb which could be powered for hours by a little cylinder the size of one's index finger. In other words: it's call the advancement of technology. I don't know how valid this technology is but I am not going to dismiss it just because "it sounds too good to be true"

MIT Team Creates Shock That Recharges Your Car 281

An anonymous reader writes "If you had a GenShock, you may not mind those potholes in the road any longer because this new prototype shock actually harvests energy from bumps in the road to save on fuel. A team of students at MIT have invented a shock absorber that harnesses energy from small bumps in the road, generating electricity while it smooths the ride more effectively than conventional shocks. Senior Shakeel Avadhany and his teammates say they can produce up to a 10 percent improvement in overall vehicle fuel efficiency by using the regenerative shock absorbers. They also already have a lot of interest in their design, specifically the company that builds Humvees for the army are already planning to install them in its next version of the Humvee."
