New Horizon Hydrocar Fuel Cell Toy Car on Sale

The hydrogen powered car uses an on-board reversible Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell to conduct the entire hydrogen-generating and electrolytic process. You can watch as oxygen and hydrogen gases are formed in two transparent containers in the back of the hydrogen vehicle. The car's fuel cell unit combines water electrolysis and fuel cell functions into one device.
The Hydrocar's reversible fuel cell uses distilled water and an electrical charge from the included solar panel to perform a 10 minute electrolytic process. Hydrogen and oxygen atoms are extracted from the water and stored in separate tanks at the rear of the car. The hydrogen is slowly released to the PEM fuel cell where it reacts with oxygen to generate electricity that propels the car's motor and illuminates the blue LED lights.

The toy car steers independently of the user once it hits a barrier, and cool blue LED lights flash from inside the cockpit.

Hammacher sells the Hydrogen Generating Car for $99.95.

Horizon introduced their first hydrogen fuel cell toy car in 2006 with the H-Racer. It is still available and sells via Amazon.com for $94.50.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
