No, for real. You just park it in a bucket of water and it generates enough electricity to power household devices¦ eventually (more on that below). The announcement was made by the lead researcher on the MIT-based project, Dr. Daniel Nocera, who said, A practical artificial leaf has been one of the Holy Grails of science for decades.
