Demonic device converts information to energy

Abstract:
The laws of physics say that you can't get energy for nothing worse still, you will always get out of a system less energy than you put in. But a nanoscale experiment inspired by a nineteenth-century paradox that seemed to break those laws now shows that you can generate energy from information.
