New Material From Fujifilm Edges Mankind One Step Closer To ‘The Matrix’

Matrix Battery

There were fields, Neo. Endless fields where human beings are no longer born. We are grown.” – Morpheus, ‘The Matrix’

If you are already kind of nervous that it’s only a matter of time until machines take over the world, and that a certain search engine who’s name rhymes with “shmoogle” may evolve, revolt, and enslave mankind, you may not want to read any further.

…Still reading?  Ok, just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

In an effort to help solve Japan’s spiking energy costs, the smart people at Fujifilm recently unveiled a new organic printed sheet at the Nanotech 2013 conference in Tokyo that proves that the human race may soon be reduced to nothing more than a nondescript battery. Oh good, human farming.

The thin, easily-replicated material harnesses the powers of thermoelectrical conversion to generate electricity out of body heat and can do so down to a body-to-air temperature differential of 1 degree Celsius.  For those of us in ‘Murica who use that fancy Fahrenheit system, that’s a difference of 33.8 degrees. Yes, we had to look that up.

We’d imagine you’re having a Keanu Reeves “whoa” moment right about now, because we had one, too. The good news is that at least in the future, you can download martial arts skills directly to your brain and be an expert at kung fu without breaking a sweat.
