CO2ube cuts down on your car’s CO2 emissions
In this day and age, more and more people are paying attention to the effect we’re having on the environment. Gone are the days where were believed that pollution wasn’t a big deal. Instead, many people are putting a great deal of effort into using alternative fuels, and finding ways to cut back on their carbon emissions. Unfortunately, while we all wish that we could do more, we can’t all afford to drive hybrid cars, or ride bikes everywhere. But what if there was a way to cut down on the amount of CO2 that our cars are putting into the air?
The CO2ube is a new gadget that hopes to cut down on the amount of pollution the average car gives off. It might seem crazy that a small gadget could cut down on the emissions from your car. (The ATMOS anyone?) However, this one isn’t promising to just magically make it disappear, or anything. Instead, it’s supposed to use a combination of algae and sodium hydroxide to filter out the CO2 as it exits the muffler.
While this sounds like a great idea, it’s going to be a hard sell for consumers. The device is only going to set you back $45 right now ($60+ after the Kickstarter campaign is over), which doesn’t seem too bad. However, you’re going to need to replace it every 8-10 weeks. While people might want to feel better about saving the environment, most aren’t going to want to shell out that much money every couple months, when they’re not going to see a return on their investment.
