Urine Luck If This Battery Dies

from the not-that-kind-of-juice dept

Physicists in Singapore have developed a new battery fueled by human urine, intending it for use in disposable health-care kits for rural areas. The mind boggles at all of the other potential applications, though, and as Cellular-News points, out, could bring a whole new meaning to "emergency" phone calls. Think of all the products it could power, like the Sony PisSP or the Apple iPeed.
