Cows, pigs and sheep have been fitted with a silicone implant that generates small amounts of energy from the body’s natural rhythms — enough to power a pacemaker.
Fancy becoming a real human dynamo? Every breath you take could one day be used to generate electricity.
Energy from the natural motion of the heart, lungs and diaphragm in cows, pigs and sheep has been harnessed to power medical implants. The hope is that people with pacemakers, cochlear implants and heart monitors will one day be spared risky surgery when the batteries need replacing. Instead, our organs would power our electronics.
