Stupid, Useless, Been-There, Done-That "Invention" Of The Year Award Goes To...

TOKYO — "Sony has developed an environmentally-friendly prototype battery that runs on sugars and that can generate enough electricity to power a music player and a pair of speakers, the Japanese company said.

The bio battery's casing is made of a vegetable-based plastic. It measures 3.9 cm (1.5 inch) along each edge and works by pouring sugar solution into the unit, where enzymes break it down to generate electricity."

Moonshiners have been making humans light-up by pouring sugars into stills then dispensing the finished product down the throats of imbibers for a hellva lot longer than Sony has been, or will BE around.

Chalk this prototype up to moonbattery and little else.
