Forget Wearables, Edibles Are Coming!

Wearable devices are going to be fun to use as they become more sophisticated. But scientists are more fascinated with edibles — edible batteries to be exact. These are ingestible batteries that could power biodegradable devices inside the body. Christopher Bettinger and Jay Whitacre, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, are behind this fascinating idea.

These batteries can be ingested like pills. They could be used to power health tracking devices inside the body. With inventions like this, we could take battery pills every day to power things inside our body in the near future.
