View Full Version : Worlds Smallest Petrol Engine

12-08-2012, 08:23 PM
Scientists have created the smallest petrol engine in the world ( less than a centimeter long not even half an inch ), small enough to power a watch or any small gadget. The mini-motor, which runs for two years on a single squirt of lighter fuel, is set to revolutionize world technology. It generates 700 times more energy than a conventional battery. It could be used to operate laptops and mobile phones for months doing away with the need for charging. Experts believe it could be phasing out batteries in such items within just six years. The engine, minute enough to be balanced on a fingertip, has been produced by engineers at the University of Birmingham.



What do you say if your watch back fires and it sounds like a fart? No one would believe the truth.

I too have heard about these. It's so cool to see something like this, it boggles the mind really, where does this inspiration come from and how did they know where to start?
