Enlisting Bacteria as 24/7 Biosensors

Harvesting host energy to power biosensors is an efficient way to keep wearables and injectables running, at least in theory. We wrote about recent work at ETRI on a thermoelectric module that generates energy to power sensors from human body heat. In 2019 we covered...
