Shown above is a Tamiya TRF-416 R/C car, but it is not your typical toy car. This R/C car is fitted with a hydrogen fuel cell powered by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies. The package comes with everything you’ll ever need to mount the kit onto your tiny R/C toy boat, little flying plane, or car kit. It can even power the cars at 45mph for a full hour of fun, though the cost for the ‘fun’ was not announced yet. Time to boast to your friends about your new toy and green commitment. And a cheap alternative way if you can’t afford the real full-size hydrogen-powered car.

Check out what we have today, the Zibits Robot! It is a remote controlled robot that is capable to move forward and spin 360 degrees. The robot itself holds 3 buttons batteries while the remote takes 2 AAA batteries. It is small enough to fit in your bag or even pocket. Tape a small piece of message on his hand and control it to the girl beside, this small thing helps sometime because it is cute. There’s only one thing that I don’t really like and that is the robotic sound effect which is a little annoying in some places especially the quiet place, hopefully they put on a switch for it in the future. The Zibits robots is available at $10 each, choose from 12 different designs. Check out more pictures and video after the break. Read more…
