General Motor's Advanced Design Studio created this winning entry for the 2006 California Design Challenge contest -- the Hummer O2 Phototropic car.

The Hummer O2 features a "phototropic" shell with algae-filled body panels produces oxygen that is aspirated out through two-way valves. The motors -- located in each wheel -- receive power from hydrogen fuel cells. The vehicle design specificies the use of 100% post-consumer recycled materials to reduce its environmental footprint.
