The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that researchers have discovered a way to generate power for nanomachines using human blood. The method, devised by the Panasonic Nanotech Research Lab in Japan, proposes fuel cells that oxidise glucose in the form of blood sugar. In theory, a single human could generate 100 watts of power — if they didn’t need any of that blood sugar for themselves.
