Some of the professional writers on the net are at such a top level that i ponder if any of them have ever printed a paperback? so every now and then i like to highlight these outstanding articles and here’s one i found fascinating the other day.
Scientists working at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, United kingdom, have discovered a way to recharge a cell phone with Human pee.
The team have been in a position to charge a Samsung smart phone by putting the fluid through a cascade of microbial fuel cells. Using this method, enough energy has been generated to send text messages, browse the World-wide-web and also make a quick telephone call.
As outlined by the scientists responsible, the next step is to completely recharge the phone with pee…Presumably cleaning their hands directly afterwards.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for ages with microbial fuel cells; he is considered an expert in harnessing power from abnormal options. The potential purposes of his work are very appealing from an environmental point of view.
Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We’re very excited as this is the world’s first, no-one has harnessed energy from pee to try this so it truly is an exciting discovery. Using the ultimate waste product as the source of power to provide electricity is nearly as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly tech is, apparently, the good doctor’s main area of appeal.
The microbial cells work as an energy converter, they turn the natural substance directly into electrical energy, via the metabolism of live bacteria. The electrical power is the by-product of the microorganism’s natural life phase, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the urine, they generate energy the energy that powers the mobile. Now that’s what we call ‘pee as you go’.
There is, at present, no plans to market this tech on a huge scale, but perhaps someday we could be signing a ‘P’ mobile contract, the trick, as they are saying, shall be pissistance.
PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The work and its implications are instead amazing. All credit to the UWE team. On the other hand, I continuously needed to do one of those ‘And Finally’ type tales and now I conclusively get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
