Two students at Swarthmore College, seniors Alex Bell and Andres Pacheco, recently built a wild hydrogen fuel cell powered motorcycle, proving that even college students are able to produce technology that a company like GM has been unable to perfect, even after spending one billion dollars on failed experiments in which cold weather damaged the membranes of the prototypes.
Back in their freshman year, the two students worked on building an electric motorcycle, but finally gave up that idea. This last Summer, the pair began work on the hydrogen fuel cell motorcycle.
The two engineering students did manage to build this working fuel cell motorcycle despite some technical problems. Both are applying to graduate school for engineering, although both are also currently entertaining job offers.
Hey Detroit, I know a couple of guys you should hire.
