A solar vehicle is an electric vehicle powered completely or significantly by direct solar energy.
This tiny car (about the size of a quarter!) doesn’t require any batteries. It has a solar panel covering the entire roof, so when the sun shines on it, the panel makes electricity that turns the motor and the wheels. Not only that, it will also work when close to a strong artificial light source.
An excellent tool for demonstrating solar power in action! And hey, one of the cheapest geek presents (excluding your unconditional love. Wait. Did I just call you cheap? Oh, no, I meant love is free, and you rock).
