    Interesting theory.. they note that the ancient "Baghdad Battery" (an electrical battery built into a clay pot) shows that the technology did exist in ancient times.

    Also includes cool blueprint. :)

    "Mythbusters" did it.

    Edit..

    Actually, the one the show did was a chemical battery. Hadn't seen this friction based one before. I hope they revisit it with this though.
