Sadly, chemists are now encouraging that trend. A new report shows that a microbial-based fuel cell using urine can be used to charge a phone in real time:
"During the [charging] operation, 2 outgoing calls were made, 2 text messages were received and 1 was sent, and Bluetooth was enabled for synchronising with another handset for file transfer."No longer will we be unable to answer that call/text at the urinal because our phone battery is low; just empty your bladder and watch the meter climb. Thanks Science!
[*] Well, at least too many men. I cannot report on what occurs in women's restrooms. I hope that they have behave better than men.
