You hear some suspicious noise in the middle of the night while working in front of your PC and what do you do? Just turn on your Spy Video Car, adjust the camera angle, turn on the night vision, put on the Heads Up Display (HUD) visor, and drive your way to the suspicious noise. That’s right – this quiet R/C car has a video camera mounted on the front. It broadcasts to the black and white LCD HUD which plugs into the remote. You’ll see everything your Spy Car sees (in bright light or in total darkness). And since it rides really low to the ground, you’ll be able to go under tables, chair, pets, and anything else that gets in your way…

Battery Brain is an automotive accessory product that easily installs onto the battery of a regular or custom car, truck, SUV, van, or RV. It uses unique electronic technology to ensure the battery always maintains enough power to start the engine. It is especially useful if you use your car battery to power and MP3 player, mobile computer, TFT LCD screen and other devices. With Battery Brain you’ll always know when is the time to turn on the engine (if you are not driving) to charge the battery 😉
Battery Brain Benefits
– Avoid wasted time being stranded and in potential danger
– Prevent damage to your battery and extend its life
– Prevent damage to your electronics and devices
– Save unnecessary towing and repair costs
– Reduce the risk of vehicle theft*
Battery Brain Type I
Once easily installed on the vehicle’s positive battery terminal, all Battery Brain models monitor the battery charge to detect if the charge is being drained below the level required to start the engine (e.g. 12.1V).
If this occurs, Battery Brain works by disconnecting the battery from the vehicle’s electrical system, preventing further drainage and preserving enough charge to start the engine. A manual reset button on the Battery Brain Type I unit under the hood only needs to be activated to reconnect the circuit and start the vehicle.
Type II comes with a remote control with a universal frequency which activates the unit and reconnects the circuit to enable the vehicle to start. Ideal for multiple vehicles or fleet use.
Type III comes with a remote control with an individual frequency, which activates the unit and reconnects the circuit to enable the vehicle to start. The driver can also choose to disconnect the battery using the remote with Type III, providing an anti-theft device when leaving the vehicle as it cannot be started or hot-wired while Battery Brain is in disconnected mode.
Type IV comes with a wired manual switch, which can be mounted remotely, that activates the unit and reconnects the circuit to enable the vehicle to start. The driver can also choose to disconnect the battery using the switch, providing an anti-theft device when leaving the vehicle as it cannot be started or hot-wired while Battery Brain is in disconnected mode. Type IV is ideal for commercial or fleet use.
Type IV RV comes with a wired manual switch that activates at 10.5V rather than 12.5V as the rest of the units. This unit is specifically made for the protection of the battery life span. It will not enable the driver to restart the engine.
The prices start at $39.95 for Type I and go up to $69.95 for Type IV
The H-racer is a futuristic toy car that contains one of the most exciting and advanced technologies of the 21st century. This car operates on 100% clean fuel produced by a miniature solar-powered hydrogen refueling station that converts water to hydrogen using energy captured from the sun.
Cars running on clean and renewable fuel are the dream of many of today’s world leaders, engineers and scientists seeking to eliminate mankind’s reliance on fossil fuels in flavor of climate-friendly energy resources.
With new advanced in technology, hydrogen is on its way to becoming the world’s next fuel. Hydrogen offers many important advantages; it is non-toxic, renewable, clean to use, and the most abundant element in our universe. And by using fuel cell technology to convert hydrogen to electricity without any combustion, the technology is a significant solution to many of our global energy and enviromental problems.
No combustion occurs inside a fuel cell. The only exhaust resulting form hydrogen fuel cell cars is pure water. Fuel cell cars that use hydrogen as a fuel are also known as “zero emission vehicles.” Today, many of the world’s automotive companies including Toyota, GM, Ford, Honda, and Daimler-Chrysler, are developing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles with the hope of introducing this technology to the public in the near future.
The H-racer toy car is the working miniature version of what is being developed in real-size cars of the future. This palm-size fuel cell car contains an on-board hydrogen storage tank, a fuel cell system connected to the car’s electric motor, and a hydrogen refueling system linking the car’s storage tank to an external hydrogen refueling station. Given its small size, the H-racer is also very safe as only tiny quantities of hydrogen are sufficient to power the car.
Horizon has created a unique, patented miniature fuel cell car and hydrogen refueling station. For the first time, hydrogen is produced externally, can be fueled into an on-board storage tank. Once the car’s hydrogen tank is full, the refueling station can be disconnected from the car, and the car can run on its own hydrogen fuel cell system on board, with the simple flip of a switch. The car measures only 16cm X 7cm, making this the smallest fuel cell car in the world. Recently nominated for the Intel Environment award in Silicon Valley’s Tech Museum, Horizon’s miniature car is about to spread a positive message to a wide audience of children and adults around the world.
The price is set at $80 for the kit (car and fueling station)
