BTW, if you go to Mexico, don't drink the water obviously, but don't use ice either! Seems obvious, but people forget.

Well, Elizabeth I would say it is another benefit. Not sure if it's more beneficial than it's intent, but a good use. We probably wouldn't be here without beer!

Haha, Cadman-LT, well i think many people would say beer is good for a lot of things, but it's quite interesting it's being used to make energy, and it seems to be one of the more beneficial uses of it!

This girl used to sing this song to me "beer is good for you" I guess now it's good for more than just us.

Haha, Cadman-LT, i didn't even think of the headline that way, but it is quite funny! I suppose I do the same. ;) But I am glad the headline caught your eye, because it was meant to. Ecovolt's not wasting beer, though--it's the stuff that isn't used in beermaking (which itself is waste) that is being leveraged for energy. Let's make that clear--we wouldn't want anyone to waste beer! ;)

Thanks for that information, tekochip. I hope it answers William's question. Perhaps it is a bit early to see the real results for the project but at least it has made it out of the lab and is being used commercially.

During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
