I am sure most of you remember OWI’s award winning Salt Water Fuel Cell Car. Well I have to tell you that the second generation of this awesome technology appears to be that much cooler, unless your afraid of spiders! The Salt Water Fuel Cell Giant Arachnoid Kit gives once again gives our kids the opportunity to learn about new forms of clean energy, and they get to build and power their very own toy and then feed it some saltwater and watch it scurry away! *shudder*
This environmentally friendly concept seems to steer us in the right direction. Everyday our kids are learning about ways to help protect our Earth and keep our world clean. This nifty little guy demonstrates to our kids a much more effective utilization of our natural resources and its fun at the same time. Can’t go wrong there.
Anyway, almost all kids love a little creepiness and our eight-legged friend here certainly has ample “let’s scare mom” factor. After assembling and activating the fuel cell module with a saltwater mixture, the magnesium metal sheet (3 sheets included) will operate the Spider for up to 7 hours. If having a giant spider crawling around your living room ceases to be appealing, one needs to simply take out the fuel cell module and rinse with tap water and dry, no insecticides required.
The manufacturer tells us that all the materials used in this kit are environmentally safe and clean, non-toxic and carry no disposal concerns. It will not produce heat, so it is completely safe for child’s play. Available now for pre-order at owirobot.com for well under 20 bucks.
