Cipher Prime

  • Built out MacApp store build, still has that weird chugging issue on some computers, but I'll spend a little bit more time working on that. In the meantime it's more important to get the build out.

MIT Glucose Fuel Cell: Proof of Concept Power Source for Brain Implants

MIT researchers have developed a non-biological fuel cell capable of oxidizing glucose and producing up to a milliwatt of power.
