Medical Nanobots to Harvest Bloodstream Energy

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

Power 0

An anonymous reader writes "They say its 7 years out, so don't get too excited, but these researchers claim a piezoelectric energy harvester will someday power nanobots that patrol our bloodstreams, which reminds me of a new sci-fi saga "Nanobot Wars"!

"In the future, nanobots could swim in your bloodstream, constantly on the lookout for early signs of disease, according to researchers creating a piezoelectric power source that harvests mechanical motion. Look for self-powered pacemakers and other medical implants using piezoelectric energy harvesting within seven years.""
