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!!

Welcome to The World Media Watch and Power Plays: World Energy Watch

The World Media Watch presents news stories and analysis from the foreign press that provide background and insight into how foreign policy and events of interest in the U.S. are viewed by the media in the countries themselves. All too often, the U.S. media neglects to report fully on the context of foreign news, offering a one-sided view for domestic consumption which does a disservice to the public.

Power Plays:The World Energy Watch presents recent news and analysis highlighting the activities of the players involved in the power struggle for the world’s remaining energy resources. Many of these stories are either not reported or underreported in the U.S. media. This column aims to enhance the public’s knowledge of the events in the energy sector and how they play out in terms of U.S. relations and future energy security.

Watch for an update of Power Plays and one or more World Media Watch columns on a weekly basis. These columns will start appearing within the next week.
