Run Computer Power for Six Months Through Blue-Green Algae

Cyanobacteria bacteria-type blue-green algae powered a computer for six months when set on the windowsill.

Algae are sealed in a container small in size to power a computer for 6 months. As well small devices can run through these photosynthetic power generators. These power devices will run cheaply in the upcoming years. It’ll run without unsustainable battery materials.
