      I’m not sure about futon power, perhaps do you mean fusion power? This is where two atoms are fused together at high temperature, this heat is then used to heat water to steam and the steam rotates a turbine to create electrical energy! This a form of nuclear energy, a test plant is being built in the south of France (www.iter.org).
