2006 roundup #44: Prototyping the future with the water-powered battery

Suzuki_batterythumb

Green gadget prototypes abounded in 2006, such as Susumu Suzuki's water powered battery (takes but a licking to keep on ticking), the Venturi Eclectic: An "Energy-Autonomous" Vehicle (with a tiny wind turbine mounted on top to harness the resistance generated while you're whizzing around; also with solar panels plastered all over, it's not pretty, but it's got a lot of options) and the prototype yoyo-powered mp3 player (sleep the yo-yo a few times to play your nighttime lullabies).  Trends set in place make it very likely that the world will only get greener; nobody likes to make prototypes and then toss them without making a few million bucks off them first.  [GT]
