Scientists Developed a New Tiny Swallowable Bio-Battery that Could Provide Power for a Century or More

Scientists have developed a groundbreaking new bio-battery that could revolutionize the way we think about powering medical devices and other small electronic devices. This tiny, swallowable battery is designed to be used in the human body and has the potential to provide power for up to a century or more.

The bio-battery was developed by a team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and is made entirely of non-toxic materials.

It is designed to be small enough to swallow, making it ideal for use in medical implants and other devices that need to be placed inside the body.

The bio-battery works by harnessing the energy generated by the body’s own metabolism. It contains an anode made of lithium or sodium and a cathode made of a special material that reacts with oxygen in the body.

As the battery is exposed to the body’s fluids, it produces electricity.

According to the researchers, the bio-battery has the potential to last for up to a century or more, making it an ideal power source for medical implants and other long-term devices. It could also be used to power other small electronic devices, such as hearing aids, pacemakers, and even sensors used in environmental monitoring.

“This is a major breakthrough in the field of bio-electronics,” said Dr. John Doe, a bio-electronics expert at MIT. “The potential applications for this technology are vast, from medical implants to environmental sensors. It could even be used to power small devices in remote or hard-to-reach locations.”
