Rather, out of the water and bio-ethanol. That weird three-legged charging stand uses energy made during electrolysis to juice up your phone or PMP. Electrolysis occurs when oxygen and hydrogen are combined in ethanol. So all you'd need is to fill one cylinder with water and the other with your bio-ethanol solution.
This technology exists today- you can go here for a detailed look at how the science works- but it is unclear how far away a convenient consumer application like this might be. I didn't expect to see portable hydrogen cells and chargers at CES 2011. So surprise is always in the cards.
If you'd like a deeper look at electrolysis, I found this excellent video of a home-made generator that seems to be legit. Check it out!

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
