Feel the wind, sail the road! Some things in this world cant help but make you smile, and the new Pterosail is one of them. The brainchild of John MacTaggart, an alumnus of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the Pterosail (think terra-sail) is a recumbent tricycle that combines wind, sun and muscle power to create the ultimate in green transportation.
In July, MacTaggart set out on a 3,000-mile voyage from San Diego to St. Augustine, Florida, to prove the effectiveness of his craftwhich includes a solar panel for charging things like his cell phone and a custom tent that is held up by the trikes mast when camping out. Check out a video of the Pterosail in action below.
