November 10 - Water Batteries

It wasn't all that long ago (perhaps a couple of months?) that I showed you the USB rechargeable AA batteries. This though, my friends, is truly the next-gen in battery design. Batteries, that are powered by water? No... It's not possible. Surely! Watch the video yourself and decide. What do Reuters say? Well...

'Nov. 8 - A Japanese inventor unveils what he calls the "next generation of eco-friendly energy sources" - batteries activated by water. Susumu Suzuki, the president of Tokyo-based building material maker TSC (Total System Conductor), has invented water-activated batteries, which have an electric current as powerful as that of a standard manganese dioxide battery. Suzuki says these batteries would be cheap to produce and can be recycled several times, making them an essential tool for the future.'

And it wasn't all that long ago that people were talking about how much more efficient this metal is than that metal... Pah! Nature always wins. Surely they realised that from the tide knocking down their sand castles? Well, all I can say is that a water-powered laptop would be pretty cool! Then my fancy water cooling could boot up my PC for me! Brilliant!
