Hydrogen fuel cell powered guitar

Hydrogen fuel cell powered guitar

Dr Michael Parkes, PhD Alumni, plays electric guitar powered by a fuel cell system he helped design.

Imperial College London showcase their zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-supercapacitor power generator at the H2Supergen BBQ at Imperial College Union. Electricity is generated through the direct conversion of hydrogen and oxygen in the air, with the only by-product being water and heat.
