The first solar powered car was showcased on August 31, 1955 by William G. Cobb of General Motors. This car was too small to drive but was a major breakthrough in technology. This changed how cars can be powered by using a sustainable energy source. Nowadays solar panels are used by spacecrafts, cars, houses etc.

Ooo, low-key lighting for a pathway. This would be nice for a driveway that can be turned on/off and is solar powered. Maybe have a clicker for in your car that toggles the lights, the gate, and the garage?

Solar cars combine technology found in the aerospace, bicycle, alternative energy and automotive industries. The design of a solar powered car is limited by the necessity of getting lots of energy from the sun and storing that energy in batteries. Almost all solar cars ever built have been for the purpose of solar car races. 3, 2 1, Liftoff!
