Our blood as fuel?

No, not to feed vampires but to fuel tiny machines in our bodies.

Swiss engineers are developing a device that works similar to a powerplant for the body.  

Blood-turbine-03

Think of it as a microgenerator for an artificial heart or pacemaker and its fueled by the blood stream.

Not sure how great this would be implanted in the body but time will tell where this technology leads.
