BRISTOL, UK — Stuck in the woods with no way to charge your cell phone? Soon you may be able to solve that problem with your own urine, reports Gadling.
Gadling reports that researchers in the United Kingdom have figured out how to use waste-eating bacteria to produce enough electricity to send a few text messages and make a call.
As of right now, the urine-to-electricity device is about the size of a car battery, but it’s expected to get smaller and more portable, writes Gadling. Also in a few years, it might be normal to see pee-powered charging stations at national parks.
