This reminds me of the fusion reactor that took scraps in the Back To The Future movie. This one produces hydrogen gas to run a fuel cell.
Although such "microbial fuel cells" (MFCs) have been developed in the past, they have always proved extremely inefficient and expensive. Now Chris Melhuish and technologists at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol have come up with a simplified MFC that costs as little as £10 to make.
