A simple toy can sometime spark a person’s interest far beyond what’s on the surface, and Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies’ (HFCT) H-Racer line of RC cars embodies just that. The enthusiast company has been around for a while, and their latest addition makes us wonder what the world would be like if all kids toys had a mix of science and technology all in one go.
On August 15, HFCT will begin shipping its i-H2GO kit, a hobbyist toy that is much more than a TRON look-alike RC car. Like its H2GO kit of the past, the i-H2GO comes with a photovoltaic panel and a H2 Refueling station, which will aid in the conversion of H2O into hydrogen and oxygen. The difference, now, is that the i-H2GO can be controlled using your smartphone through the use of the devices’ built in gyro sensors and Wi-Fi connection.
The i-H2GO will run for $180 (USD), and you can see for yourself why this hobbyist toy is actually quite cool.
