NEC Flask Fuel Cell Phone

Fuel Cell Phone

By Evan Ackerman

Why why why can’t I get myself a practical fuel cell yet? They seem like such a good idea: booze = power. Everybody talks about doing it, but it hasn’t been effectively DONE yet. Until… Soon, maybe? This is the NEC Flask, a cellphone powered by an integrated fuel cell that’s supposed to be released this year. The clear casing lets you see at a glance how much juice you’ve got left, and there’s a semi-transparent touch screen on the front. Although it looks like it might be refillable, details are alarmingly sketchy, so for the moment I’ll be filing this under ‘too good to be true.’
