Water-fuel car unveiled in Japan

Unless we all run out of water ... but I guess we have MARS!

See video here ...
Jun. 13 - Japanese company Genepax presents its eco-friendly car that runs on nothing but water.

The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car's tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.

Here's the wiki article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genepax

the Genepax product appears to violate the First Law of Thermodynamics. There is speculation that the hydrogen is being generated by reacting a metal hydride with water and if that's the case then there will have to be new metal hydride added at some point.

Still this is intriguing because of the fact that they demonstrated the car and it ran very efficiently. This is worth following I think.
