Art, music, future design, and technology content will be written.

Most of us have thought about the production of energy in a more complex way. When we think about what it is produced from, we reduce the big energy sources such as sun, water, the steam, wind, in fact, equlo realized the energy production from potatoes that many of us heard from somewhere, played the Doom game that we struggled for days.

Equalo continues to grow in power with

potatoes to a Raspberry Pi Zero loaded with Doom in the 17-minute video. For those who do not know; It is possible to generate electricity by the reaction of zinc and copper, from gaining phosphoric acid in potatoes.

Equalo calculates that a Raspberry Pi Zero running Doom requires about 100mA of power, which Equalo has to use 770 potatoes to provide this power. So Equalo uses about 100 kilos of potatoes for the video in question.


As you can imagine, things don’t always go as planned. Because the first system that created it could not provide enough electricity to Raspberry Pi Zero, but Equalo truly believed in this video that it advertises a week for this project.

During this one-week period, Equalo is left with a roomful of rotting boiled potatoes while running Raspberry Pi Zero and playing Doom. Although Equalo currently has only 1.5 thousand subscribers, it is obvious to have a larger channel in the future with this effort.
