Urine powered Generator

Maker Faire Africa is an annual pan-African event which hosts a community of innovative 'makers' from around Africa. This year, in Lagos Nigeria, an unusual product was showcased which presumably attracted alot of attention; and I'm not surprised it did.
"A Urine powered generator created by 4 girls namely; Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).  
1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.
