As far as we're concerned, this is proof positive that solar energy has finally arrived for the mass market. Supermodels and dorks alike can appreciate the "Mini Solar Racer," which is billed as "the world's smallest solar-powered car."

Given its 1.3-inch-long chassis, we tend to believe the claim. The only quibble we have is with its design--it looks kind of like a microchip on wheels in the photo on Gizmodo. But hey, the Model T wasn't exactly a thing of beauty either. And for $20, what do you expect, a Phantom ?
