Viral Batteries

Via Medgadget:
Copying how red abalone build their shells, Angela Belcher and her team are developing a way to actually "grow" rechargeable batteries with the help of viruses--tiny microbes that multiply by infecting living cells. Their technique would take a matter of weeks, rather than the 15 years the red abalone needs to assemble a full-sized shell.
