Powered Cockroaches

Scientists suck power from cockroaches, Matrix-style

“An enzyme in the cockroach implanted biofuel cell breaks down sugars in the digestive tract, to form two simpler sugars called monosaccharides. Then a second enzyme oxidizes the monosaccharides resulting in the release of electrons.

The power isn’t much at around 100 microwatts, but it may lead to a power source for tiny embedded electronics that turn the cockroaches into mini espionage cyborgs. All they need now is a way to steer the cockroaches. I find they tend to scatter and disappear when you turn on a light.”
