Big Orange Ball: Forget the Sun, Charge With Citrus

Sure, solar is a more available source of green power. But this is just plain awesome.

We knew citrus has the ability to give off a small electrical charge (enough to run a clock, say), but charge a handheld computer? That's gonna take a little more than a sliced lemon. Sure enough, it takes about 595 oranges (cut into 2,380 segments) to juice up an iPhone.

Wonder if they used organic.
