Spinach-cell power

UT researchers are involved in yet another plant-related renewable energy source project. This one sounds more delicious than some of the others.
At the heart of the device is a protein complex dubbed Photosystem I (PSI). Derived from spinach chloroplasts, PSI is 10 to 20 nanometers wide. Around 100,000 of them would fit on the head of a pin. “They are the smallest electronic circuits I know of,” said researcher Marc A. Baldo, assistant professor of electronic engineering and computer science at MIT.
Hmmm...salad bedding rethought as a kind of perpetual energy machine. I don't know why we didn't think of this sooner.
