Chemists build body fluid battery: "Our bodies could one day power their own electronic implants. Chemists have developed a miniature battery that could run on bodily fluids to drive sensors to monitor our health. The biofuel cell converts directly into electricity the energy produced when glucose reacts with oxygen during normal metabolism. It could be inserted in contact with glucose-containing body fluids under the skin or in the spinal cord, for example."  Catalyst-covered carbon fibres are used.  The cells are short-lived however, and are a long way from human application.  7:46:45 PM  permalink
