On Sunday, Tahrir Square in Cairo became a laboratory to test one of Egypt’s latest inventions: a car that can run on the street, float on water, and even fly if requested to.
The car is the brainchild of Ashraf al-Bendary, an Egyptian poet who also sees himself as an inventor. In a recent interview, he said he believes he can change the face of the world.
Enter the "Egyptian Monster," which is the name he chose for his multi-functioning car that he claimed can move on land, in water, and in the air.
By the sound of it, the Monster presented a magical solution to the city with some of the worst traffic jams in the world. In a television interview, al-Bendary said that the car ran on self-generated energy and reached a top speed of 120 kmh (75 mph). He also said that Israel and America were competing for the rights to the Egyptian Monster.
