Walkman powered by carbohydrates


sony-carbo-battery.jpgWhile humans look toward bread and potatoes for their daily sustenance, Sony has decided to let electronics feast on carbohydrates as well. In their latest effort to appear ecologically friendly, the Japanese electronics giant has successfully developed a prototype battery cell that is capable of generating electricity from both carbohydrates and sugar, achieving output of 50 milliwatts in test cells. That amount of juice is more than enough to power a Walkman – so we could see sugar-powered Walkmans sometime down the road. Does it come with an anti-ant coating?
