Shoot, My Phone Is Dying, Can You Pee In This For Me?

I own an HTC Evo. It’s my favorite gadget in the world. Nothing I’ve ever purchased has been more worth the price. But the battery life? Horrible. Some folks have gotten good battery life out of their Evos. I don’t. I have seven homescreens, all with at least some form of widget. I use my device for streaming music, I have everything synced. I made the concession of only turning on GPS and WiFi when I need them, but if it weren’t for the already sucky battery life, I’d leave them on all the time. Like I do everything else. I have somewhere in the area of a hundred apps installed and I’m sure at least 20 of them are needlessly pulling down or sending back data and driving my battery through the floor. And I love it.

Thankfully, I’m rarely far from a charger. But if SiGNa Chemistry Inc. has their way, I won’t need to anymore. Instead, I’ll just have to make sure I’m never far from my bladder. And I rarely am.

This device will apparently take water, or any fluid (yes, including that one), and, using SCIENCE, begin charging your gadgets. It’s actually pretty cool. Way better than that portable urine-based waterwheel I’ve been lugging around to keep my Evo up and running all the time.

Ars Technica has the full rundown of the science-y stuff, because, you know, that’s what Ars Technica does. Nerds.
