A Breakthrough in Non-Toxic Edible Batteries

Medical Patent for Edible Baterries “We can now use melanin pigments as components for ingestible batteries,” said Christopher Bettinger, an associate professor of materials science at Carnegie Mellon University recently. This allows medical scientists to move beyond similar toxic lithium versions (that have been around for ages) that powered, for example, small devices that take pictures as it moves through the gastrointestinal...
