Someone put a virus in my lipo

Good read from National Geographic... researchers are studying using live viruses inside of batteries to make them greener and easier to manufacture.

Hmm, I wonder how these viruses will interact with the human body.
Now we won't have to worry so much about lipo fires, we'll be more concerned with the bio-hazard and the Lipopicornaviridae family of viral infection.

Very cool what they are coming up with today, but sarcasm aside, a little scary.

Geez you can't post anything without politics getting in the way.

Now if they could get the virus to recharge the battery on the fly we're in business.

April Fool ?

If you scroll to the bottom of the story you will find:
"Findings detailed online in the April 2 issue of the journal Science"
Maybe the Journal of Science got it from someone who posted it the day before?

Yes and no, technically a lipo is a lithium ion battery. The poly refers to the material in which it is encased.
