plant electricity <An idea that probably wouldn't work>

Post by Imammstcnerd » Tue Jul 01, 2008 1:16 pm

plants and alge are incredible at caputureing the suns power. and some such as bamboo grow so fast.

it would be neat if we could put some thing on top of a stalk of bamboo for it to push against. And through a series of gears have it turn a generator to lessen or eliminate the amount of fuel burned.

:? Like i said it probably wouldn't work :?

plants stop growing when they hit something, and they try to go round it.

plants like bamboo grow up so fast because they have a better efficiency to produce matter with the same conditions than other plants.
and it's also related to their Auxins (Fithormones), here in my country is an algae (Cochayuyo: Durvillaea antarctica) that can grows 30cm per day.

We better keep using plants for food and bio fuels hehe, if we want electricity we can use water, wind, sunlight, etc.
