Clever Canadians discover AQUATRICITY!

Powering small devices with water -
Small electric charge could be used in calculators, phones

Hopefully they’ll find some way to apply it easily, and we’ll get water batteries in a few years.
And to think, I passed up a tour of the U of A science facilites a few months ago.

Does this mean the calculator, phones need to have water in them to function? How much water would be required to supply the voltage for a phone?

At this stage, I don’t this anybody knows.

The beeb has a slightly longer story:

“Wow! I didn’t know you had a lake on your property!”
“I don’t. That’s my cell phone battery.”

Wow, I hope this doesn’t drive up the price of urine.

Time to start hoarding!
