Can Urine Be Used to Charge Your Smartphone?

Who knew urine could power your smartphone?

Interesting developments from the Bristol Robotics Lab, the creative team have developed a brilliant device that uses urine to charge smartphones. The device uses a collection of cylinders which are filled with electro active organisms that feed off what they find in urine, which is rather fascinating.

The device is due to be tested at Glastonbury Festival, it will be fascinating to see the results. This device would be a heaven send for many festival goers that may not have access to power outlets, unfortunately the device does slowly charge smartphones. So no fast charging just yet, hopefully this is something the Bristol Robotics Team could look into implementing. 

Once the device is ready to be released to the general public it would be interesting to see how the Metro Rod engineers could use the device when on site. 

Looking forward to see how the device will progress over time and what over innovative devices the team in Bristol will come up with. 

For more information on the device, visit the BBC website to view the full story.
