Toy Fair 2008: Corgi's H2Go Hydrogen-Powered Car

Posted By: Brian Heater

Of all the booths I managed to check out at Toy Fair yesterday (and I checked out a lot), die-cast model company Corgi's proved one of the more impressive. The British company showed off a wide array of licensed products, ranging from the Muppets, to Harry Potter, to the upcoming Star Trek film, to Nintendo characters. Maybe it's all that time I've been spending over at GoodCleanTech, but nothing impressed me quite as much as the H2Go car the company was driving around on a little track outside of their booth.
According to Corgi, the H2Go HF Mach 3.0 is, "the world's first and only hydrogen-fueled radio controlled car that requires no disposable batteries." The kit comes with a car, refueling station, a solar panel, and a remote control.
I spoke with a few representatives at the company, and they noted that, the technology may also be utilized in the creation of more environmentally-friendly cellphone and gadget chargers in the near future. In the meantime, we'll just have to settle for the awesomeness that is the RC car.
Check out a video demonstration of the car, after the jump.
