Sony has unveiled a splendid new series of fuel cells, which seem to be straight of out a Sci-Fi movie. For those you don’t know, fuel cells are batteries that can be made to run off of common household materials such as Sugar or alcohol. It has the potential to replace the cells we use today. Fuel cells work by converting energy stored in the ‘fuel’ directly into energy.
Although it is quite likely, that the first wave of fuel cell based devices (such as the one promised by Toshiba for April this year) will most likely be more simplistic, and have a simpler design, this gesture affirms Sony’s commitment to Fuel cell technology.
