New York Sci­en­tists have de­vel­oped a new pa­per-based bat­tery pow­ered by saliva that can be used in ex­treme con­di­tions where nor­mal bat­ter­ies do not func­tion. Re­searchers from Bing­ham­ton Univer­sity cre­ated the bat­tery by build­ing mi­cro­bial fuel cells with in­ac­tive, freeze-dried cells which gen­er­ate power within min­utes of ad­ding saliva. The bat­tery gen­er­ated re­li­able power from a drop of saliva, sup­ply­ing on­board power that could be used by Point of Care di­ag­nos­tic plat­forms.
