Future gazing: growing your own battery.

Today I had a meeting with my boss, who told me about a great talk he’d been to by Professor Angela Belcher, from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In it, she decribed using viruses to make energy generating devices, such as solar panels. Luckily, she gave the same talk at a TEDx event, which I’ve posted here. It gets interesting (from a microbiologist’s perspective) around six minutes in. At the very end are some working examples of what she’s talking about. Although it’s still very early days, I really do think this is rather exciting!
