AA Battery Powered Ultralight
Students at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have successfully constructed and flown a ultralight plane that is powered solely by AA batteries. On Saturday, the manned ultralight managed to fly a "couple hundred meters" using 160 Panasonic Oxyride AA batteries. The glider's length is just over 30 feet and it is constructed out of carbon fiber and styrofoam. In other news, several local community college students managed to create a AA battery-powered beer bong by cramming a handful of batteries down a traditional beer bong.
