What do you guys think of this?

There is a radio show on BBC 4 tonight (8.00pm) discussing this "issue" (it is a two parter, part one has been and gone but you can still listen to it on iPlayer).

The EATR appears to use a MFC (Microbial Fuel Cell) to create an organic power supply, which does raise the question of what matter it is using. Personally, I have no issue whether it is "vegetarian" or otherwise. I just want to know that troops are safe.

Off Topic: I love the name of the guy that created the EATR, Dr Finkelstein (ring any bells) ...

Regards,
Sam
