“Pee As You Go?” – Pee Can Power Smart phones, Seemingly

My basic review of the new technological advancement it begins well, looks rather awesome, is simple to run and really power resourceful, the technological advancement is a top quality item. I’m pleased I purchased it, read further beneath.

Scientists functioning at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, United kingdom, have worked out a way to recharge a mobile phone with Human urine.

The team have been in a position to power a Samsung smart phone by putting the liquid through a cascade of microbial energy cells. Using this process, enough power may be generated to send text messages, browse the Web and even make a short telephone call.

As outlined by the scientists responsible, the next stage is to totally power the phone with urine…I assume washing their hands immediately afterwards.

Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has worked for a very long time with microbial energy cells; he is thought to be a specialist in harnessing power from extraordinary sources. The possibe purposes of his work are very appealing from an environmental viewpoint.

Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We’re very excited as this is a world 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 energy to produce electrical power is nearly as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly tech is, seemingly, the good doctor’s main area of interest.

The microbial cells work as a energy converter, they take the natural matter directly into electrical energy, via the metabolism of live microbes. The electrical power is the by-product of a microorganism’s natural life cycle, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the urine, they create energy the energy that powers the mobile. Now that is what we call ‘pee as you go’.

Toilet humour aside, the team have engineered a world first, as nothing as large as a phone battery has ever been charged using this method before.

There are, nowadays, no plans to market this technology on a sizable scale, but maybe someday we could be signing a ‘P’ mobile agreement, the trick, as they say, will be pissistance.

PS – I’m sorry about this one. The work and its implications are astounding. All credit to the UWE team. However, I always needed to do one to those ‘And Finally’ type tales and now I finally get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
