Scientists have developed a flexible battery that could run on saline solutions such as bodily fluids such as tears, sweat or even urine.

A new paper published on Thursday by researchers at Fudan University in Shanghai, China proposes a new technique for manufacturing batteries that would replace toxic chemicals with salt water.

The batteries could for a safer way to power wearable or implanted devices, the paper published in the the journal Chem proposes.
