With " potato chips " in Internet

24,05,2000 10:50:55

A group of British Tueftler invented a potato-claimant Web server. As the BBC reported on Tuesday, two Internet pages in the World Wide Web could be operated - several days long without power supply plugs only by twelve potatoes.

The Tueftler took a Intel 386-Prozessor as basis. On a further chip the software stored for the operation Servers and the pages themselves were. As power source Servers served in potatoes put zinc and copper electrodes. Around the computer and the " batteries " to overloads, that was not however limited access to the server.

Potatoes are well-known as a potenzieller current supplier, because the salty inside of the tuber possesses particularly good electrolytic characteristics. Into a potato put electrodes made of different metals (here zinc and copper) cause as in a battery an electro-chemical reaction, which causes a current flow. Also the digital clocks with bio batteries, available in gift goods loading, use the same effect (dpa/uba)
