From battery life to pure life, new research shows we're getting closer to a future where important implanted and wearable health devices could run on power collected from our own organs.
Researchers show that materials called piezoelectrics, packaged onto flexible strips attached to animal hearts, can supply power for medical devices where batteries pose problems.
Stanford researchers find a new way to safely charge tiny devices embedded inside the body. Cyberization, here we come.
A prototype cardiac energy harvester out of the University of Michigan could one day harness the beating of a heart to power a pacemaker.
A team of engineers at Stanford says it's possible to power a tiny, implantable cardiac device using radio waves instead of batteries.
Researchers at Virginia Tech say sugar could be the key to cheap, biodegradable batteries that can be refilled.
ATM hacker Barnaby Jack's death was an accidental drug overdose, said San Francisco's medical examiner's office.
Biomedical engineers out of Johns Hopkins and Stony Brook say gentle beams of light -- instead of electric jolts -- could be used to treat arrhythmias in the near future.
The security researcher, who was expected to demonstrate newly-discovered pacemaker vulnerabilities at Black Hat next week, made headlines in 2010 when he hacked an ATM in front of an audience.
Rice University mechanical engineering students hope their PediPower shoes can one day power pacemakers, artificial hearts, and more.
