hmmm hydrogen eco friendly!

We have another kid from Institute of technology of Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) in Surabya, who invent electric car!





Sorry but i can't find the English language news but here's some info: the car can go as fast as 100-120km, it needs to be charged for 4h and can last for around 130km.... yes the car can only be used to get into destination that is not so far..... they are still developing it so it can last longer.

and another invention we have is a wireless remote control mini car, by Lilis Setiono a student from ITB (Bandung)



and a solar energy car-looking vehicle by a kid from Jember, which is made from recycled items

^lol we are having 2 thread which is almost similar. by the way, Pait in Tagalog is also 'bitter'. I already heard about Majapahit empire as well as the Sri Vijaya. What is your ancient writing in Indonesia or the Script writing?

^^ Hinduism and Buddhism were obvious influence of Indian culture in Southeast Asia, so basically if it doesn't have anything to do with it, its unlikely to be part of sanskrit but trades might influenced it somehow. (note that im no expert in this part of history)

Is Sanskrit the original script used in Indonesia before Hinduism and Buddhism arrived there?

there should be some sort of alphabeth but surely sanskrit influenced it heavily, that's why its different from the original ones
