Hitachi shows Fuel-Cell iVDR mini Gadget
 
 

Hitachi showed a portable information terminal powered by a methanol fuel-cell at a presentation for an upcoming exhibition in Japan.

The Portable Video Player like device has a 3.5" Screen and uses iVDR mini (iVDR stands for information Versatile Disk for Removable usage) drives as storage. Exhibit attendees can carry the device around and view additional information to the exhibit. Hitachi obviously wants to show-case that their fuel-cells really work.
More details on PC Watch Title (Japanese) and in Hitachi Press-Release (Japanese).
