Here’s a unique vehicle that doesn’t cost much to drive, as long as you keep it near the ocean.

According to Dvice, a man in Japan, Masahide Ichikawa, has created a motorbike that only needs salt-water to run. It uses sodium metal to help convert the salt water into the fuel that makes it go.

By using a solar-powered heater attached to the bike, salt water is evaporated into sodium metal and then mixed with some more water. The result of the chemical reaction is fuel that drives the motorbike.

Japan Probe didn’t go into specifics such as how fast the motorbike can reach or how long the sodium fuel lasts, but by golly, this is a breakthrough.
