    Are there any ships that use hydoelectric power, generated while they sail? Is it possible, or are ships too small?

    Thats a pretty interesting idea actually - I doubt we'll see anything like it whilst theres still taxable fuel around.

    On a similiar kind of note - I was wondering, if you could get a light to power itself by shining onto a solar panel - but produce more power than needed to light it, and use the excess for other stuff?? ie create new solar panels/lamps - like a modern version of perpetual motion.

    No, you cant create energy from nothing. A light bulb is always going to be less than 100% efficient (infact much less) as is the solar panel

    No, the light thing wouldn't work. There's no way you could get the system to be 100% energy efficient, and even if it was, it would break the laws of physics if there was more of an energy output than input. The ship idea could potentially work though

    of course you cant get any worth while power from hydro electircs on board ship as that would be perpetual motion but there are many ships that do have hydro electirc plants to provide recharge units on board

    Hmmm, maybe they secretly hate them and are trying to rid the world of bananas. Monkeys are very much like computers, you just never know what they are plotting
