We all would be familiar with this little creature which creeps so slowly and having a hard shell at its back often found in the gardens and on plants.

Well, we Humans have finally figured out something positive from them as well other than creeping and amusing children: Scientists at the Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York want to extract electricity from their blood after they have been implanted with biofuel cells.

According to Evgeny Katz, the leading scientist of that team shared that the electricity is extracted from the glucose and oxygen in the snail’s blood. All they do is attach their electrodes to it and extract the power from it.

This could be brought to a huge scale as the power generation likely from this source would be amazingly a new dimension.
