For the last 10 years hundreds of engineers, inventors, and scientists have been investigating the possibility of using water for fuel by means of electrolysis. It was not until recently when John Kanzius, a retired engineer, discovered an efficient method of burning saltwater with radio frequencies that commercial interests in the method began to rise. This prospect of running one’s car on water stimulates a plethora of questions about economy, distribution, dependence, and the commoditization of the natural resource. This is a proposal that attempts to outline a procedure for harvesting, dispensing and commuting on water fuel.The Water Scooter Network is to provide an alternative to Manhattan’s overcrowded subways and expensive taxicabs. It is aimed at reducing the waste of the current taxi cab system in Manhattan where sixty-nine percent of all rides are single passenger and forty percent of cab mileage is spent cruising for passengers. The concept of the Water Scooter is that smaller is better. The smaller the vehicular footprint the less real-estate required and the better the fueling efficiency. As a network of shared scooters, the logic is park and go. It is a bottom-up strategy where the individual user becomes the key component in dispersing and fueling the water scooters.The Water Scooter Network is mapped at two scales across Manhattan. The first scale occurs at the edge of the island, on the water, where harvesting mats collect water and extract hydrogen by means of electrolysis. These are the fueling mats. The second scale occurs within the streets of Manhattan, where current lanes for automotive traffic are converted to scooter lanes designated by the scooter parking pods that hover above.
