French researchers have created a new biofuel cell that uses oxygen and glucose from the body to produce electricity. The team from Joseph Fourier University tested glucose biofuel cells implanted inside lab rats with positive results. This is significant research as this biofuel cell is dependent only on sugar and oxygen, chemicals already present in the body. The researchers hope that eventually, their glucose biofuel cells will be able to power all kinds of implants in humans.
