Touted as the wave of the future, Corgi International, in partnership with Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, has developed the H2Go, a radio controlled toy car powered only by sunlight and water. The car makes use of solar power to extract hydrogen from the water, which the fuel cell then converts to electricity. The car requires no batteries that would eventually make their way to a landfill or incinerator.
The car was recently unveiled at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair where it won the 2008 ToyAward in the Electronics & Technology category. In accepting the award, Michael Cookson, chief executive officer of Corgi International said "We are delighted about the great trust placed in our H2Go. The H2Go is not just a radio-controlled car featuring new technology but also a symbol of the toy industry's impending adjustment to a future powered by clean energy".
