    Wow, another form of energy revealed with new nanotechnology, but this combines with biotech as well.

    Truly cool stuff.

    Pretty scary stuff that the country that was once known for the "black death" aka the "great plague" would be hatching virus strains to power flashlights. It's a Stephen King novel in real life.
