Some of the trained writers on the net are at such a top level that i wonder if any of them have ever created a book? well occasionally i like to highlight these exceptional content pieces and here is one i found remarkable the other day.
Scientists functioning at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, UK, have figured out one way to recharge a mobile phone with Human urine.
The team has been capable of charge a Samsung mobile by placing the liquid through a surge of microbial fuel cells. Using this process, enough energy may be generated to send text messages, browse the Web and also make a short telephone call.
Based on the scientists responsible, the next step is to totally power the device with pee…Presumably cleaning their hands straight afterwards.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for a very long time with microbial fuel cells; he’s considered to be a specialist in harnessing energy from abnormal sources. The possibe purposes of his work are very appealing from an environmental viewpoint.
Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We’re very excited as this is the world’s first, no-one has harnessed power from pee to do this so it’s an exciting finding. Using the ultimate waste product as a source of energy to produce electricity is nearly as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly technology is, apparently, the good doctor’s main area of curiosity.
The microbial cells work as an energy converter, they turn the natural substance straight into electrical energy, via the metabolism of live microbes. The electricity is a by-product of the microorganism’s natural life cycle, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the urine, they produce 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 a mobile battery has ever been charged using this process before.
You’ll notice, nowadays, no plans to market this tech on a huge scale, but maybe someday we can be signing a ‘P’ mobile contract, the trick, as they are saying, might be pissistance.
PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The task and its implications are astounding. All credit to the UWE team. However, I constantly needed to do one of those ‘And Finally’ type tales and now I finally get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
