Power Plant On A Chip SpaceDaily

A silicon chip that produces the power to operate a laptop computer? Scientists at Lehigh University don’t think it’s a dream, and they are developing a prototype chip-based micro-power plant that has produced hydrogen for a micro-fuel cell. The amount of hydrogen produced was small, but it was enough to demonstrate that the Lehigh project is feasible. Given time the Lehigh group believes they will develop a working generating plant, housed on a silicon chip, that produces sufficient quantities of hydrogen to run different types of power consuming portable devices.
