"We now understand how the natural electric eel cells work," said David LaVan of NIST. "Now we can think about how we can use those cells to power medical devices"

"The practical implications of this are huge," said Parikh. "The notion of biobatteries is very real."

Eel's shocking secrets could power devices

Could this breakthrough, power the rfid implant for a lifetime?
hrmm i guess we shall see...

by the way what does a capital 'V' mean in a surname again? isn't it satanic or something? eg like Anton LaVey?

Interesting indeed, will have a further look into this, thanks

Not sure about these RFID things, cant imagine why they couldnt implement a bio-cell design, be it a good or bad thing.

btw, why does one write McCain? is he satanic lol?

They were talking about this on modern Marvels today. it was pretty interesting.
As for the name... according to babel fish it translates to Van. It's French.

La: the feminine singular definite article in several Romance languages, including Spanish, French, and Italian. In English, prefixed to a woman's name, ironically as if to that of a prima donna.

According to Wiki. So... it's a girl Van.
No. I don't think it means the devil. Yeesh.
