Obama Energy Plan Includes Nano-Generators That Bite

~~By InsightAnalytical-GRL

It’s coming soon…as part of the Obama Energy Plan.  Forget about oil and clean coal and carbon trading.  This is the real deal.  We’ll be able to power our own mobile phones someday.

Thank goodness! We are SAVED!!

Hamsters in jackets harnessed for energy

Scientists have managed to harness the energy-producing power of hamsters by fitting them with tiny detector jackets.

Role Model for Humans

Proto-type for Future Human Nano-Generators

The devices are strapped to the animals as they run on their cage wheels, capturing the biomechanical energy they release as they exercise.

Experts believe the technique could one day be used to capture power produced by humans.

Although it would take 1,000 hamsters to generate enough energy to power a mobile phone, Dr Wang said the technology could have practical applications when applied to larger animals and humans.

Personally, I’ve been a gerbil owner and think their personalities are better than what hamsters display.  Let’s give them a try, too…Never hurts to have a backup plan!!

  1. I’m okay with this plan only so long as both hamsters and gerbils make a living wage. Also they must only work 40 hours a week and have the option, no secret vote, to form labor unions.

  2. I smell a hamster union…(of course with no option for secret ballots).

  3. This combined with the WSJ headline “Scientists Target Sheep Belching” yesterday, plus the Obama Reordering Priorities in Huge Budget……all make me think our world has completely gone nuts.

  4. Haha….what about benefits? Pensions? The sheep being put in boxes to eat and pass gas might catch “wind” of hamster unions……

  5. Experts believe the technique could one day be used to capture power produced by humans.

    Are these the jobs that will be created in the Obamadrama future world?? Step right up folks, get a job in our newest industry…..energy production! Just climb up on this wheel, strap on your official energy jacket and start running on the wheel to nowhere!

  6. The obvious application isn’t pets, but kids – making them run a treadmill to charge up their iPods, cell phones, Gameboys and whatever else they play with. Wouldn’t make smarter kids, but it would lessen the childhood obesity problem.

    Of course, I’d make the kids run in a giant hamster wheel, but then I doubtless would have been a Very Bad Parent.

  7. Cesar Millan has been onto this for AGES…he puts dogs on treadmills all the time!

    Actually, if we’ve probably got the ENTIRE COUNTRY already on the treadmill/’wheel of trying to keep up with their credit card payments…so it should be EASY to generate enough power to at least keep the lights on in the White House!!!

  8. I declare, IA, everytime you come up with some new gimmick you make me feel dumber and dumber. This leave a reply is great. It must be nice to have so many brains. LOL

  9. The “nesting” of replies is courtesy of WordPress, not me!!!!

    NOW THIS TOOK BRAINS…

  10. Since Scooter Libby was prosecuted for outing Valerie Flame, why wasn’t Boren prosecuted?
