Some of these trained writers on the net are at such a high level that i wonder if any of them have ever printed a book? well every so often i like to highlight these excellent content pieces and here is one i found fascinating the other day.
Scientists working at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, UK, have worked out one way to power a mobile phone with Human urine.
The company have been in a position to recharge a Samsung phone by placing the liquid through a surge of microbial fuel cells. Using this method, enough energy is generated to send text messages, browse the Internet and even make a short phone call.
According to the scientists responsible, the next phase is to fully power the phone with pee…Presumably washing their hands directly afterwards.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for a long time with microbial energy cells; he’s considered an expert in harnessing energy from unusual sources. The potential purposes of his work are very interesting from an environmental perspective.
Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We are very excited as this is the world’s first, no-one has harnessed energy from pee to do this so it truly is an exciting finding. Using the ultimate waste product as the source of power to produce electrical energy is almost as eco as it takes.” Eco-friendly technology is, seemingly, the good doctor’s main area of interest.
The microbial cells work as an energy converter, they take the organic matter directly into electrical energy, via the metabolism of live microbes. The electricity is the by-product of the microorganism’s natural life cycle, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the pee, they generate energy the energy that powers the phone. Now that’s what we call ‘pee as you go’.
Bathroom humour aside, the team have engineered a world first, as nothing as large as the phone battery has ever been charged using this method before.
You’ll notice, at present, no plans to promote this tech on a large scale, but perhaps someday we could be signing a ‘P’ mobile contract, the trick, as they are saying, might be pissistance.
PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The work and its implications are actually astonishing. All credit to the UWE team. On the other hand, I continuously wanted to do one of those ‘And Finally’ type stories and now I conclusively get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
