Tapping potatoes for power

Scientists at Israeli university claim to have generated electricity out of potatoes.

    More than 1.6 billion people in the world have little or no access to electricity and most have no way of accessing modern electrical technology, such as electric lighting, mobile phones or televisions.

    But scientists at an Israeli university say they have made a remarkable discovery in relation to the potato, which may bring electricity to millions of the world's poor.
