Scientists make a real life Pikachu

Quote:
Scientists Make Rats Generate Electricity
A real life Pikachu almost a reality.
Posted on May 19, 2010 at 3:03 am by Matt Simmons


Well in a major scientific breakthrough, today scientists have announced the successful implantation of a working glucose biofuel cell in a living animal. Without getting to technical, scientists have found a way of making enzymes in glucose and oxygen generate electricity.

Now what kind of helpful impact could this have? Well fans of The Matrix should remember that we could be used to harvest all powerful machines once they take over the Earth. In more realistic terms, they could be used to power pacemakers and other artificial body implants. Going a step further, we could theoretically power our cell phones and portable systems in the palms of our hands. Still I think everyone's missing the best aspect of this, and that is Nintendo could jump on this and create real life pikachus to sell as pets.

Does that mean that there's electricity constantly radiating from it?

They got the electrical part but they still need to create a stupid looking yellow creature if they're gonna make real pikachus. I guess for now you can settle for a ratachu or w/e.
