Today I read a news item on BusinessWeek (http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D9D4MAM00.htm) saying China has now become the largest exporter in the world surpassing Germany who was the former largest. And a few hours later I see this post on a forum of where a Chinese person has developed a Mobile phone that is powered by Coca Cola. Yes you read it right!! It is Coca Cola the world famous cool drink that any Tom, Dick or Harry from ages 2 to 100 would know!!!
Chinese designer Daizi Zheng has created a mobile phone that uses sweet drinks like Coca Cola instead of lithium batteries.
Zheng has been working on this revolutionary device for Finnish cellphone giant Nokia, and claims he has come up with a way of using sugar-based drinks to power mobiles. Any sweet drink, even sugar-sweetened water would be enough to keep the phone running much longer than lithium batteries.
The bio-battery invented by Daizi Zheng generates electricity from carbohydrates, using special enzymes as catalysts. In the process, the device generates oxygen and water. The designer claims his sugar-based bio-battery lasts up to four times longer than a fully charged lithium battery and is much easier to recharge: just pour some more sweet fuel.
Lithium batteries are very expensive and harmful for the environment, so if Zheng’s Coke-powered cellphone turns out to be real, it would be a significant breakthrough.
Wonder if Coca Cola is also sponsoring this research coz obviously, if this becomes a reality, then Coca Cola sales will boost like hell. Even if half of the reported 4.6billion mobile phone users in the world shift to this phone, its a huge boost for the sales!!! maaaaan.........
I recently watched the movie called Avatar (which I hope to write a review on very soon), and was so much awestruck!! it was one good movie with super cool CG that you wont even know which is CG and which is real!!
Any way, today i was going thru the web and in a forum I found these pics. Let me let u say the rest of the words...............
