Hydrogen fuel cells are great and all, but where are we getting the hydrogen from (right now its made from coal and natural gas – not exactly a clean energy source) and how are we transporting and storing it (that ish is flammable – i.e. the Hindenburg)? Well, why not forget about all that, and just create a way to produce hydrogen from water on the fly, right in your car, and with no tank full of compressed H2 gas?
Scientists in Israel think they have figured out a way to do just that. The idea is to use two separate storage containers, one for water, and one for boron – mix them in a controlled fashion, and voila, hydrogen for the engine.

[Ed: myninjaplease reported a similar idea a little while back – getting hydrogen from water using aluminum and sodium hydroxide]
