Default Urine powered generator

This is a bit unusual, but pretty cool none the less. I can't really think of a better use for my urine off hand...

During the Maker Faire Africa, in Lagos, Nigeria on November 5 and 6, 14-year-olds Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and 15-year-old Bello Eniola presented their unique proposal. According to The Next Web, here's how it works:

-Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which cracks the urea into nitrogen, water, and hydrogen.
-The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
-The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
-This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.
-1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.
