    Bacterial Battery

    Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have created the necessary prerequisite by developing a programmable, biohybrid system consisting of a nanocomposite and the Shewanella oneidensis bacterium that produces electrons. The material serves as a scaffold for the bacteria and, at the same time, conducts the microbially produced current. The findings are reported in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

    I suppose the human body could be called that. All organisms, then.

    Somebody should invent the ice battery. You charge it up by freezing it, simply by leaving it out overnight in Nunavut. Then you bring it down to the Big Smoke and run your air conditioners on the thermal difference as it thaws.
