There are four African young ladies have made a generator that produces electricity for six hours utilizing one liter of urine as fuel. There generator was unveiled at last week's Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, by the four highschool students Akindele Abiola, Duro-Aina Adebola and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15.

There urine-powered generator exactly works:
  • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
  • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
  • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
  • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.
Maker Faire is a popular event across the African continent, drawing thousands of participants who travel to Lagos to show their inventions and other practical creations.

As the Next Web portrays it, the Maker Faire is planned to highlight creations "that solve immediate challenges and issues, and afterward works to support and propagate them. Put an additional way, this isn't only a bunch of rich individuals discussing how their applications are set to change the planet."
