Algae Biofuel Billboards
MOS designed these revolutionary Algae-Biofuel producing stations. They act as greenhouse, power-station, and billboard all at once! One of the nice things about algae biofuel farms is that the process not only generates fuel, but takes carbon dioxide out of the air and emits oxygen.
We, for one, would love to see things like this sprout up around the cities of the world.

burning fuel » goodmagazine.com
an average car burns 1125 calories of energy per minute at 60 mph
an average human burns 4.6 calories per minute at 3 mph
so, should you walk or drive that mile to the store? walking will take 1.5 calories (or 6,280 joules), while driving would take 19 (or 79,549 joules).
that’s over 12x more cash, pollutants, and resources burned into nothing.

MAKE: Blog: Run your car on trash

"We may not yet have a flux capacitor for time travel, but we do already have the equivalent of "Mr. Fusion", which if cleverly applied, will enable you to run your car on everyday "trash"— today. This "magical" device is called a gasifier. And what it does is called gasification. … This redeployment was made possible by the gasification of waste biomass, using simple gasifiers about as complex as a traditional wood stove. These small-scale gasifiers are easily reproduced (and improved) today by DIY enthusiasts using simple hammer and wrench technology"
