Houseplants Could Power Our Computers

A group of researchers at the University of Georgia have devised a method to utilize photosynthesis in the creation of electricity. Plants use solar energy to feed themselves is by splitting up water molecules and using the electrons in the creation of sugars. The researchers adhere to the opinion that a better use of those electrons, freed by plants from water molecules, were better off powering our devices. Having attached fine nanotubules to plant cells and drawing the electrons from them, the team has managed to direct the electrons down a wire as electrical current. Testing the strength of the current, they found it twice as powerful as electricity received from traditional solar cells of the same size. The process of affixing nanotubules is a bit complicated to use at the moment, though if improved, the team at the University of Georgia envisions a greener future for us.
