Urine ‘The New Energy Source’
Headlines are meant to shock. Or at least snare our attention. I came across one yesterday that did both. The headline read, ‘Leave Your Charger at Home, Urine Will Power Your Phone.’
Now, I’m no Bill Nye the Science Guy, but I thought, ‘hey, this sounds kind of cool.’
The article from Mashable.com said,
Your pee is more powerful than you think. Scientists have successfully generated electricity from human urine, enough to partially power a cellphone.
At the very least, it’s a charger you won’t lose, or forget to bring with you when you leave the house.
Amazing huh! I thought so anyway.
The one liners are sure to be coming.
Hey, I’ll be back in a second, i have to go ‘charge the cell phone.’
Oh, and it will bring a new and more accurate meaning to the phrase ‘trickle charge.’
Here’s to long battery life….as we know it.
