  Power your Cell Phone with your urine?
Ki Bang Lee coming straight out of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore, has developed techonology that can test your urine and power the testing device all from the same chip.
Testing urine can reveal the identity of illnesses, and the new paper battery could allow the sample being tested to also power the diagnostic device, Lee says. It could be a useful power source for cheap healthcare test kits for diseases like diabetes, and could be used in emergency situations to power a cell phone.
Good thing the cell phone use is only for emergency since I don't think a lot of people would spring for a device that houses their own urine that close to their head. Ick indeed.
