batteries that use glucose to produce power
« on: March 25, 2009, 03:10:20 AM »
The technology to convert glucose to electricity has been around for a long time, but only now is someone trying to convert it into a product. Sony, you just made my cyborg dream come true! ;D

Now if only they get small enough to implant . . .

Why aren't these everywhere? If the technology's been around for this long, and if it's actually as efficient as they say, isn't that the perfect solution to the energy crisis? The same way living things produce energy?

Have they gone through the problem of filtering through all the stuff that isnt glucose? In the video it shows them injecting pure glucose onto the thing - but live stuff is not pure glucose.

Hmm... if the battery can be powered by food that we eat, then it must also be able to discharge the unused food scraps... thus the poo & pee-ing battery!

lol, thats actually a good point to raise. what will happen to the un-used "scraps"? or do we have to feed it pure glucose?
