Solar Rollers are nothing but remote controlled race cars which will be custom built with the parts of 1/10 scale radio controlled cars. These cars make use of hand soldered solar arrays for generating power and thus signify a valuable prospect to the high school students by training them with hands-on experience in terms of renewable energy. Solar Rollers is a great effort put in by a nonprofit organization Solar Energy International which aims at educating young generation about the promise of free and clean energy from the sun. The cars themselves might not be that out of the ordinary –low and flat to the ground but that are designed mainly for functionality and rather than making them artistic.

The prototypes of Solar Rollers competed in a demonstration race on May 24th at Denver, Colorado. So if the Kickstarter campaign becomes successful then Solar Energy international will produce instructional and supportive online tutorials for students so that they can build more rollers and plan for more races all across the globe.
Wireless Charging to be implemented in Electric Buses Starting with Long Beach
