Cool or Boo: the “Sugary” Nokia phone

I was talking on the phone today and my phone went dead because I forgot to charge it last night, and it was a long-distance phone call!!  I ended up having to go home and charge my phone for 5 mins so it will have enough power to turn it back on again!!  This wouldn’t be a problem if I had a phone that is powered by… um… maybe a can of coke.

Dream comes true,  a Chinese designer Daizi Zheng is designing a phone for Nokia  that can be powered by sugary drinks, like Coke and Pepsi.  The new eco-friendly Nokia mobile phone doesn’t have a name yet, and the concept of powering the phone is to “use enzymes as a catalyst to generate electricity from carbohydrates (currently sugar)”.  When the battery “dies”, all is left is oxygen and water, fully biodegradable, it’s also supposed to run four times longer than the standard lithum battery on a single charge.  Pretty neat huh.. i think it is.  I like the whole idea of  biodegradable battery, so environmental.  Mostly importantly, you will never have to worry about running out of battery.  Just go to the closest vending machine and you can talk for another hours on the phone!  🙂
