The H-cell is a unique integration “upgrade” kit for electric hobby R/C cars, designed as a drop in unit that can fit inside widely available Tamiya TT-01 type chassis. The H-cell system designed by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies includes a 30W air-cooled, air-breathing and self-humidified PEM fuel cell stack with integrated bright blue light-emitting fans and a sleek aluminum casing.
The integration kit also includes electronic controls, a miniature pressure regulator and three 10L metal hydride canisters in a hydrogen storage “rack”. At maximum power output and with a single charge, the H-cell can run the car at 35 km/h for over 1 hour, as opposed to just 15 minutes with the conventional Nimh battery.
The price of the Hydrogen RC car kit is $1500.
Nearly all geeks think about creating some cool hardware project which should be controlled over the internet from time to time. Unfortunately, a continuously running computer consumes very much power and is therefore very expensive. This item can solve this problem:
Infratec PM 221 MIP is a multiple socket outlet that has an ethernet interface and an integrated web server which makes it possible to control two pairs of slave outlets using the WWW or a WAP capable mobile phone. You can also create different users with different rights to control the outlets.
Additionally, there is a master outlet which can detect if the device plugged in is switched on or off. It can then switch on or off the slave devices according to its status. If there is a power breakdown the multiple socket outlet remembers the status of the outlets and switches them on again when the power returns.
Each outlet can handle up to 5 Ampere and the webserver consumes less than 1.5 Watt. The whole outlet has the following dimensions: 60cm x 5,5cm x 6cm. Please notice: If you don’t use the european schuko style plugs you’ll need an adapter.
The Multiple Socket Power Outlet with a Webserver is available for about $200.
