Loopwind Wind-Powered Car teaches kids about going green

We’ve got to teach the kiddies about alternative sources of energy if we want them to clean up the mess we've made of this planet. We're off to a good start with the H-Racer, which did a great job of showing them how hydrogen can power a toy car. Now here’s a similar example of wind power charging a toy car’s batteries.

Charge up the Tamiya Wind-powered toy car on its loop-wing turbine for 10 minutes, and it’ll run for a minute or two. You won’t save enough money on batteries to pay back its $67 price, but it’s a good demo that’ll be memorable for the next generation of energy scientists.
