RC car runs on soda can rings, Doc Brown approves

Many a future engineer was inspired by Back to the Future's Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown, and not just because he proved that unkempt eccentrics could truly change the world. No, he also pioneered Mr. Fusion, the coffee maker/cold fusion reactor that turned garbage into energy. And while we're still waiting for cold fusion and time travel to become a reality, today we're all one step closer to waste-powered cars. A pair of Spanish engineers have recently unveiled the dAlH2Orean (see what they did there?), a R/C car that runs on aluminum. Dropping a few soda can tabs into a tank of sodium hydroxide produces enough hydrogen to power the little speedster for 40 minutes at almost 20mph. Hit the video above to see it in action, along with your daily helping of the Chemical Brothers. Fitting

So,aluminium in a fuel tank with Sodium Hydroxide makes Hydrogen.The H2 is converted to electricity in a fuel cell that powers a brushed motor right?(I think it was a silver can Tamiya brushed motor).It looks good but I'm slightly skeptical seeing this in a full scale car.I would LOVE to be proven wrong by these guys.
