Urine-Fueled Distress Signals

Imagine that you're stuck in a remote location and you need to radio for help. But your radio has no power! Never fear. As long as you have some of these paper triangles created by researchers at the Bristol BioEnergy Centre — and you have to go to the bathroom — you'll have battery power. Just pee on the paper triangles and they produce enough power to send a radio signal.

And what if you don't have to go? In that case, urine from just about any animal will do.

Put these out at a large concert and let the audience power the band instruments.
