Sony develops batteries from sugar cubes

Ever wanted to listen to the Sugarcubes while listening to an MP3 player powered by sugar cubes? Do you even know who the Sugar Cubes are? Glad you're following me on this one. Anywho, Sony has developed a battery that is made out of, you guessed it, sugar cubes.

The sugary-sweet battery uses enzymes to digest sugar and extract electrons and hydrogen. The hydrogen goes on to mix with oxygen to make water while the electrons head over to your MP3 player to give it power.

So far the batteries have only been able to produce around 50 milliwatts. That's not really enough to power anything significant, though Sony did string several of them together in order to power an MP3 player.
