A better use for Coke

I tend to drink lots and lots of Coca-Cola, although lately, I’ve been able to go for five days without it. My sisters are not pleased about my habit, but oh well, I do my best.

Apart from satisfying my thirst, it looks like Coke can serve a different purpose now, thanks to a discovery by designer Daizi Zheng: as a power source for a phone being developed for Nokia. The phone’s battery can be charged by enzymes extracted from the drink’s sugars and carbohydrates.

This looks like it could just be one of those dreamy concept phones that make you wonder why they aren’t properly released to the market, but one can only hope that this model really will come out in the future. And wouldn’t it be cool if the phone itself can be manufactured out of recycled soda cans?
