Would You Pee In Your Socks To Charge Your Phone?
A group of English researchers has found a way to turn human urine into electricity: with microbial fuel cells (MFCs) strapped to socks.By Mikah Sargent | December 18, 2015
Science has a clever use for your urine, and, no, it's not treating jellyfish stings.
A group of English researchers and roboticists have designed a urine-powered generator that fits around your foot — it's sort of like a tube sock.
The tube-sock-like device is made up of a series of microbial fuel cells or MFCs (more on those in a minute), rubber tubing and a pumping mechanism. (Video via University of the West of England)
