      I wouldn’t be able to make a car like this but a company called LightyearOne are claiming they can build an actual car powered by the sun.

      If by micro car, you mean a toy car, powered by the sun, we all can… You need a solar cell and a mini electric motor and you would be good to go đŸ™‚ Look at this tutorial —>

      Cool! People working at Tyndall in Cork City (where I work) made one of those mini cars that run on sunlight and water.
