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 company have been in a position to recharge a Samsung phone by putting the fluid through a surge of microbial fuel cells. With this method, enough energy is generated to send text messages, browse the Internet and even make a brief phone call.
According to the scientists responsible, the next step is to completely power the device with pee…I assume washing their hands immediately afterwards.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for a long time with microbial fuel cells; he’s thought to be an expert in harnessing power from extraordinary sources. The potential applications of his work are very appealing from an environmental point of view.
Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We’re very excited as this is a world first, no-one has harnessed power from pee to try this so it truly is an interesting discovery. Using the ultimate waste product as the supply of power to provide electrical energy is roughly as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly technology is, seemingly, the great doctor’s main area of curiosity.
The microbial cells work as an energy converter, they take the natural matter straight into electricity, via the metabolism of live microbes. The electrical power is the by-product of a microorganism’s natural life phase, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the urine, they produce energy the energy that powers the mobile. 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 the present, no plans to promote this tech on a sizable scale, but perhaps someday we could be signing a ‘P’ mobile agreement, the trick, as they are saying, will be pissistance.
PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The task and its implications are amazing. All credit to the UWE team. Though, I continuously needed to do one of those ‘And Finally’ type stories and now I finally get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
