Those who live in the Plastok village of Belarus are not surprised anymore when see the new inventions of their neighbour. All summer long they can observe a hang-glider flying in the sky, and the wife of the inventor sometimes goes to the local feldsher’s station where she works, by a custom bright red electric car. Technical miracles of the man are already famous in legends in the remote Belorussian province.
Absolutely silent and so bright, the electric car is one of the cool inventions of Vasiliy.
Its maximum speed is 33 km/h, which is good enough. Once it is fully charged, it can drive for four days. The vehicle helps to save a lot of fuel.
It took Vasiliy three months to make the electric car. Everything, including its body, was made by hand. In the picture above is another one of Vasiliy’s vehicles – he based it on a LuAz. The factory engine was replaced with a more powerful Japanese one, and an automatic tensioning winch was mounted on the bumper. It does not look too presentable but it performs better than some off-road cars.
But the electric car is not his only creation. There is one more thing:
It’s the third and the best hang-glider made by Vasiliy (it’s the name of our inventor).
The hang-glider helps Vasiliy to save time: where its takes an hour to go by car, the hang-glider gets to the destination in only half an hour. Thus, he can fly to his friend living in a neighbouring village, for example.
When he comes to a fuelling station, those drivers who meet him are shocked.
Vasiliy likes to travel and what he brings from abroad are not souvenirs, but new ideas which are subsequently realized here in Plastok. Thus he’s planning on making his own electric generator soon.
