Researchers have made all kinds of things that run on urine. And now researchers from the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol are currently looking for people to fund their latest project, a cellphone that is powered by urine.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, is one of the researchers. He uses microbial fuel cells that are capable of producing electricity from urine.
“Using the ultimate waste product as a source of power to produce electricity is about as eco as it gets.”
So if you wanted a cell phone that runs on pee, urine luck my friends. This is an interesting field that could one day transform the energy business.
