Biofuel Bugs?

A young breed of scientists from Feati University recently discovered a way that these common household pests can produce energy. The invention, a biological fuel cell, is a device that uses pests’ enzymes (a protein found in all living things) to directly convert biochemical energy into electricity. Since it utilizes natural substances, biofuel cells are cheaper and environment friendly as opposed to batteries which use expensive metals to act as catalysts for the power-producing reaction.

The city of New York could go off the grid in a year... One word: cockroaches.
