I'm impressed, really really impressed.
Param Jaggi, a 17-year-old high school senior spent three years and came up with a device that cheaply converts an automobile's carbon dioxide emissions (think global warming and go boo) into oxygen (now go hurrah).
Param's Algae Mobile won an award from the Environmental Protection Agency for cleaning up the exhaust fumes from a car that would normally pollute the air. Believe it or not the Algae Mobile works by photosynthesis, with algae inside a gas-permeable, aluminum tube placed in the car's exhaust pipe converting carbon dioxide into oxygen. The teen inventor has applied for a patent and I am certain this will not be his last invention.
Now if only the adult inventors of the world would follow Param's example. Photo credit: Hisham Ibrahim/Getty Images
