Most of us adult ecogeeks are vying for electric cars, rooftop wind turbines or any gadget we can call green, but what about the young, budding ecogeeks? What can they wish for?
Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies has come up with the answer. They've introduced the Hydrocar, a mini fuel-cell car for kids that teaches them about alternative energy while they play. To power it, water is poured into the fuel cell that is hooked up to a solar panel. The energy from the solar panel converts the water into oxygen and hydrogen, which powers the fuel cell - no batteries or electric charging necessary.
The Hydrocar is just one of the company's many educational toys and kits based on renewable energy. We've written before about the importance of alternative energy education for kids and this toy really hits the mark. Let's hope we see more companies focusing on these types of toys in the near future.
