Finally solar power is being applied to cars in some useful way. Sure, the car only measures 33 x 22 x 14 millimeters, but it’s a start, right?
The “World’s Smallest Solar Racing Car” as Ecotopia calls it, is an ultra-small, fully functional toy car with a tiny solar panel that generates enough electricity to run it’s little motor and make it zip all around your kitchen floor, even with just a strong interior light source. Awesome.
I had a massive collection of matchbox cars as a kid, with the display cases and fold-out carry cases and all that business. Now I’m a little older and into cool technology, and I think this would make a pretty rad gift.
It’s a bit too small and fragile for the youngest kids, but it’d be perfect for the tech savvy 12 year old or even the bored, cubicle bound 20-something.
