Gas Turbine as Fuel Cell

From the files of things I predicted in crappy, unfinished sci-fi epics…

Sure, a 10-watt gas turbine the size of an SD card is cool, but I couldn’t help noticing that these things run at 20K rpm. So why not just extend the spindle and make a super-fast, power-generating, direct-drive hard drive (aka memory card and battery in one) out of it? I know, I know, crystal lattice laser storage will be here before this thing goes to market. But hey, I didn’t put the Mr. Fusion in the DeLorean.

The term “rocket in your pocket” is about to take on a whole new meaning.
