University Installs Prototype 'Pee Power' Toilet

While the thought of this is kind of nasty, it's actually a pretty good idea. No sense in pissing away free electricity.

A prototype toilet has been launched on a UK university campus to prove that urine can generate electricity, and show its potential for helping to light cubicles in international refugee camps. Students and staff at the Bristol-based University of the West of England are being asked to use the working urinal to feed microbial fuel cell (MFC) stacks that generate electricity to power indoor lighting.
