The H2GO hybrid is a environmentally friendly R/C car that uses hydrogen to power the battery that turns the motor and moves the toy car. That’s right, this R/C is a tiny electric car fueled by hydrogen. And where do you get this hydrogen fuel? From a pint-size solar-powered hydrogen generation and refueling station, of course.

Toy owners will use a solar panel and water to create the hydrogen fuel supply. The solar panel is also used to recharge the R/C’s remote control and super capacitors. Hydrogen will be used to charge the vehicle’s battery and power the motor, and the H2Go’s super capacitors are used for a little speed boost.

Created by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, H2Go is the perfect gift for the budding automotive enthusiast with a passion for green tech. The $150 kit comes with a hybrid hydrogen car, solar panel, hydrogen station, and remote control and is available at horizonfuelcell.com

Arguably, the best part about camping is the escape from eye-scorching computer screens and carpal tunnel-inducing keyboards. But hey, Orange knows it’s hard to get away. The company’s Glastonbury Solar Concept Tent uses photovoltaic fabric to charge a flexible LCD screen and wireless Internet, presumably provided by a 3G data subscription. But that’s not all: “Glo-cation” technology allows campers to find their site via SMS messaging or RFID signal, lighting up the shelter like a beacon. Winter campers will delight in a ground sheet that heats automatically when temperatures fall below a certain level. Roughing it, this is not. [Orange via Gizmodo]
