Canon's going green: fuel cells in DSLRs

I’ve never really had a problem with my Rebel’s battery life — in fact, it’s excellent. I guess that’s no reason to stop trying to improve it, however, and Canon is working on doing just that. Of course, they’re not an energy research company. But MTI Micro is, and they just happened to announce a deal with a “global Japanese developer of digital cameras” to create a fuel cell solution for “new multi-functional consumer devices.” Hmm. How could these two events be related?

I don’t know if I can figure this mystery out! Where’s Encyclopedia Brown when you need him?
