Alice in Wonderland Related News Items

OK OK these aren't about the Tim Burton movie, but this site is also about Alice in Wonderland independent of the 2010 movie. Here are some items:

Giant Solar Flowers with WiFi and places to plug in a laptop will be touring cities across the US to publicize the next generation of the Toyota Prius. They started in Boston. As one blog who covered it commented, the giant flowers make you feel like you're in Alice in Wonderland. This detail is just too juicy to leave out: The next Prius will have solar panels to ventilate the interior of the car when it's parked in the sun. How cool is that?

Next, inspired by Alice in Wonderland and fashions of the 1930s and 40s, an enterprising vintage fashion fan has created a dress she calls "The Alice Project." It looks really awesome!
