The Afterlife Project – feeding power of the dead into your electronic gadgets.

Yup, the ultimate in recycling and a chance to put a little spark into your loved one’s lives after you’ve moved on. Still in the design stages this concept is being worked on (apparently seriously) by James Auger of  & Johnny Richards of

Basically the idea behind this scheme is to create a microbial battery from the energy of a loved one that may then be used to power a range of electronic products. These guys claim to have already designed the battery that produces energy from the natural gastric fluid released by a decomposing body.

It really is about generating life after death. As they say, ‘All of those chemicals have existed since the Big Bang. We die, we decompose, it starts again. The microbial fuel cell literally taps into that process.’

Well, there you go then. You heard it here at The Coffee House!

Just think, you could be powering your kid’s micro i-pod beyond the grave … whilst they play their favourite memory of you. Cute.

    It’s certainly the weirdest post I’ve thrown into the mix … and there has been a few! I won’t be rushing out to buy the kit. I mean, where does one store the body; under the floor boards, next to the stereo system, with a tune wafting out from the Grateful Dead?! 🙂
