'[OT]: Potato Powered PIC?'
2002\02\27@202131 by Eoin Ross

HMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm - now my twisted mind gets to work ...

How about (for the bait dispenser) one hole where Mr (or Mrs or Ms or ... Getting sidetracked here) stick their head to get some bait. A clamp closes - not enough to strangle. Then we use their struggles to generate electricity to charge the battery ... or we drive two pins into the body and suck electricity out of the nervous system.

MAny thanks to the PICList for helping me in my experiments

LOL. I wanted to suggest this to the guy with the bait dispenser unit in
the jungle from a few days ago. Didn't know how to put it in english
though :)

Careful there, Tim.
You're liable to catch a lot of grief from PETP (People for the
Ethical Treament of Plants) if you try something like this. :=)

Yep - was developed from the Chinese gooseberry, also "Kiwi " is what NZers call ourselves.

It's a kind of gooseberry isn't it? Gooseberrys (sometimes) have spines
where Kiwifruit have fur...They are sour too. Better for battery powered
watches though because they are smaller ;)

(My neighbours/friends, Wayne and Dan, I think would object
to being sliced thinly)

An unripe piece of fruit would have more acid and keep longer

You could carve a nice battery out of green rhubarb
