Gallery: Air cars get ready for takeoff

Soon you could be riding on air, compressed air that is, according to MDI which showed off its upcoming AirPod at the Geneva auto show in Switzerland. The AirPod is expected to have a range of 112 miles for its 46 gallon tank of compressed air which takes two minutes to fill up. MDI claims it can hit 45 mph - but it only produces 8 horsepower so it might take a while to get to that speed.

CNET's Wayne Cunningham says the AirPod driver will use a joystick to control the 465-pound vehicle. The three-wheeler is expected to hit production this spring.
