Blood Power

Neat article posted on slashdot about using your blood for power. Japanese Scientist apparently figured out a way to draw electricity out of glucose using vitamin K3 (both found in the human body). The device generated enough electricity (0.2 millawatts) to power a small blood sugar level and then transmits that level. This would be great for artifical organs. Anyone want a truly built in cell phone charger?
