Run your Cell Phone using water

This is cool. Samsung is planning to introduce cell-phones that is powered by water. Yes, you got it right, it is water. Samsung always got something interesting research going on in their labs. But the best part is that you may be able to get your hands on one in 2010. So, instead of finding recharging socket, you can just use water.

It will  basically be a fuel-cell powered device. In the case of other fuel cells they required methanol, but the new Samsung technology will do it with water

When the handset is turned on, metal and water in the phone react to produce hydrogen gas. The gas is then supplied to the fuel cell where it reacts with oxygen in the air to generate power. Other fuel cells need methanol to produce hydrogen, while Samsung’s needs only water. [- sem.samsung -]
