Hybrid Engine Offers Renewable Power Source – Bacteria!

A tiny, bacteria powered rotary motor has been developed in Japan. I could absolutely see this as a way to power cyberware; though currently they have to coat the bacteria in a protein for it to work, I’m sure they’ll develop a way around that soon enough.

Japanese researchers created the bacteria-powered motors, which they say could be used to power micro-pumps on semiconductor chips designed to analyze fluids, such as blood and drug compounds. And because the machines are biological hybrids, working cells could divide and multiply to replace worn parts.
