Micro Batteries Patented

As exciting as nanotechnology is, one thing that always seems to get left out is where the nano-machines will get their power from. Microbatteries might be an answer someday, though they are a long way from useful now.

Ultimately, I don't think this will be the solution. I suspect instead that the convergence of biology and chemistry will provide machines that work like living cells. In fact, I think that in a very few years, it's going to be very difficult to decide what "living" really means. No doubt some folks will have some real moral issues with this, but that's not going to stop any of it from happening.

That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they really hate is lousy programmers. (Larry Niven)
