So we know kids can run on sugar, but how about toy cars?
Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy has created the Ene Pocket, a toy car powered by Sony’s Bio Battery. The Bio Battery works by breaking down sugars typically found in soft drinks and fruit juices. Apparently the juice that gives the battery the most ‘juice’ is grape.
I know that disposable batteries are terrible things to have in landfill. I also know that grape juice leaking out of a zooming car is terrible for cream carpet… Let’s hope that the Bio Battery for toys is developed further and that we stick with lemonade!
The car is still a prototype and not yet available for sale.
