Body heat could power pacemakers

Abstract:
Scientists at Biophan Technologies in New York are developing a "biothermal battery" that turns the body's own heat into electricity. According to New Scientist magazine, the device could be used to power small medical implants like pacemakers. Recent advances in nanotechnology have now made it possible to use these materials to power small devices, like medical implants.
