Burn something, get power
I waste a lot of time trying to find free power sources. I'm always wrong, but I keep trying. Like somehow trying to capture the heat or wind generated by subway trains and convert that to power.
But someone thought of a better idea - a portable stove that turns twigs into electricity. It's called the Biolite Stove and it has a thermoelectric generator that turns gassified wood into power. I still kind of don't understand how it works, but who cares - it's cool. It probably produces more power quickly than a solar powered generator, and at night as well.
