Urine and socks could soon be used to power smartphones and other portable and wearable devices
 
 A combination of urine and socks could one day be used to power mobile phones and other portable and wearable devices, scientists believe.
 
A pair of socks fuelled with urine pumped by the wearer’s footsteps has powered a wireless transmitter to send a signal to a computer.
 
Experts said it “opens up possibilities” for using urine to power wearable devices .

Urine has been used for many things in the past...

The ancients were not acquainted with soap,but they used in its stead different kinds of alkali, by which the dirt was more easily separated from the clothes. Of these, by far the most common was the urine of men and animals, which was mixed with the water in which the clothes were washed.

or, yellow and brown in this case!   :)

 

Don't forget about toilet water.  Recycle that for a good drink!

I wonder if the corporate distilleries make the whiskey and vodka with pure sewage water?

That makes for some squishy texting and walking. Don't forget to look up from time to time so you don't splash into anybody.
