“Pee As You Go?” – Urine Can Recharge Cellphones, Apparently

Without giving too much about this technology article, but I found it remarkable and appropriate to what I’m currently doing.

earpieceScientists functioning at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, UK, have discovered a way to power a cell phone with Human urine.

The team have been in a position to charge a Samsung phone by putting the fluid through a cascade of microbial energy cells. Using this method, enough power may be produced to send text messages, browse the Internet and also make a quick phone call.

As outlined by the scientists in charge, the next stage is to totally power the device with urine…Presumably washing their hands directly afterwards.

Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for a very long time with microbial fuel cells; he is considered a specialist in harnessing power from extraordinary sources. The potential applications of his work are very interesting from an environmental point of view.

Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We are very excited as this is a world first, no-one has harnessed power from urine to do this so it truly is an exciting finding. Using the final waste product as the supply of energy to provide electrical energy is roughly as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly tech is, seemingly, the good doctor’s main area of curiosity.

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

Bathroom humour aside, the team have engineered a world first, as nothing as large as the mobile battery has ever been charged using this process before.

You’ll notice, at present, no plans to market this technology on a large scale, but perhaps someday we can be signing a ‘P’ mobile contract, the trick, as they are saying, will be pissistance.

PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The work and its implications are actually amazing. All credit to the UWE team. Though, I constantly wanted to do one to those ‘And Finally’ type tales and now I conclusively get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
