What the F*WK? "The Ultimate...Renewable Energy?"

Renewable Energy is somewhat of a big thing. It's defined as "Energy that can be replenished at the same rate as it is used." What, then, should we call something that a) generates 10x more energy than is required of it, while b) powering itself? That's precisely what this new technology from researchers at the University of Michigan is proposing to do: they're proposing to 'power your heart'*, with your heart!

(*Yes, I realize pacemakers don't truly power your heart, but it's more fun to relate this to The Circle of Life)


  1. Now this is pretty cool. Will we end up in a Matrix-like world where I'll plug in my iPhone to my arm, in order to charge it?

    This would make us all capable of being the Bionic Man, if properly accessorized.

  2. Heh heh - I'm just picturing you being pissed off Sunday morning at the Vegas airport cause you lost the bio-jack for your iPhone.
