Popeye Power May Energize Tomorrow's Electronics

Abstract:
The Popeye Principle may one day power cell phones and laptops, say researchers at MIT, who have used spinach - the superhero sailor's fave food - to power a tiny electronic circuit.

Going green may be a trend among Earth-conscious companies, but the practice has posed numerous dilemmas for electrical engineers that long to harvest the power of plants.
