Thought of reviving this thread, but figured this could go on it's own:

http://zombiesquad.theedge.net/phpbb2/v ... c.php?t=33

Given the assumptions that (1) there can be such a thing as a zombie, (2) zombies can move an extremely long time on no food and (3) zombies will keep moving in a direction given a target we could make a zombie-powered generator. You know, the zombie on a treadmill attached to a generator's flywheel type of thing.

The laws of conservation of energy be damned!

Or do zombies chow on stuff when there are no humans around as to avoid violating the laws of physics? Maybe they lay in the sun like lizards? Or are wind powered?

I'm trying to come up with a cute zombie-battery Matrix reference but am too tired. I'll try again after some red bull and a nap. :lol:

I'm going to move this over to the "Zombie Biology" forum section. I think its better suited there.

"Hey sir, the lights are goin'down"
"Chuck in another bucket o' zombies there son"
"Aye aye captain!"

Yeah sounds like a good idea considering we could harness them up somehow so they move in only one direction to create some type of energy source.

Could you get it moving fast enough, or along with that, produce enough energy through the slow motion?

Just put them in an enormous pit with a dome on the top and collect the methane from thier rotting corpses. They would need to move, just lay there, writhing and out-gassing. As the bottom groups rotted, you throw new ones on the top. Should power the planet a decade or so. And if enough of them were left in the wild to bite, and we repopulated really fast, we have a RENEWABLE power source.

If you read Magestorm's journal he removes zombie brains and harnesses the electricity they create to power batteries and the like.

BUMP

I like the idea of asking what does zombie run on. Does he need food or will be just run till he has no flesh left?

Rum.

No wait that is pirates.

I think zombies run on their muscle and then cease to be in about a month. I can't explain Romero's timeline except to say.....A Wizard did it.

I would build a big wheel like a water wheel but use zombies in it. as long as they keep walking i can use gears to up the speed and make power. with enough of them i could make allot of power. maybe have a Chechen or goat to teas them in to walking faster.

I would wonder, do raver zombies decompose at a faster rate due to higher metabolic demands. And would Romero Type Zombies move fast enough to generate enough power, or that could just be solved with gear ratios... The Zombie Brain Battery is a cool concept, but limited by decomposition rate. Also "shelf-life" of the infected is also questionable.

Sure, put aside put them inside a super strong sealed container.

Perhaps the velocity isn't a problem, using slow generators capable of generating large amounts of power if handled with sufficient force, so If you chained in long horizontal rows a series of zombi, making them circling, and put a piece of meat above their eyes, at a height unreachable.
But it would not be easy to think at restrictions that prevent them to break their body from their strength.
Also a similar system require more space, so greater quantities of zombies that walk, compared to the use of runners zombie.
