The team over at Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies recently unveiled i-H2GO. This small car is controlled by Wi-Fi using an app on the user’s iOS and soon Android mobile device. i-H2GO throws away the batteries and powers itself off of a real-working miniaturized hydrogen fuel cell. You simply pour regular water into the solar powered refueling station, which electrolyzes water, separating it into its two main parts, hydrogen which will be sent to the car and oxygen which is released into the air. I will also tell you that the refueling station can be powered by your laptop if the sun isn’t shining.
As explained by the i-H2GO creators, “The chemical energy of Hydrogen will be converted to electrons using the fuel cell inside the car. The fuel cell will operate the opposite process, which is to combine hydrogen and oxygen (from the oxygen in the air) into water, and produce a flow of electrons … electricity … which powers the car’s motor.”
You can now pre-order your kit at a price of US$179.99. i-H2GO is scheduled to ship on August 15th.
