Scientists have developed a new virus that attracts metal particles, spinning them to create an electric current. The finding basically opens the doors to create viruses that can act as batteries. If that's not the genetically engineered future, I do not know what is...

Reuters tells us, "Researchers trying to make tiny machines have turned to the power of nature, engineering a virus to attract metals and then using it to build minute wires for microscopic batteries."

Neat. I want.
