Can you pour me some more battery?

When I was in my twenties, I used to work as a fitness trainer (yes, I wasn't always an ultimate geek), and one of the people I trained which had an amazing progress rate always bragged that he has found the ultimate formula: eating Pizza and drinking Coke.

Of course, it never made sense, but no one could argue with results, and the man showed results beyond normal.

Did he found a secret source of energy?

Apparently, it's not a secret anymore. Here's a Nokia phone prototype that uses sugary drinks instead of a battery...

Bio battery is an ecologically friendly energy generates electricity from carbohydrates (currently sugar) and utilizes enzymes as the catalyst. By using bio battery as the power source of the phone, it only needs a pack of sugary drink and it generates water and oxygen while the battery dies out. Bio battery has the potential to operate three to four times longer on a single charge than conventional lithium batteries and it could be fully biodegradable.

Cool, and if you are really thirsty... you know... OK, maybe not.
