boingboing shows us that they finally did it... people can be batteries now...

the matrix is... coming to get me?

This brings up the one central flawed premise that really pissed me off about the matrix. All biological energy comes from the sun. The machines can't feed off of us unless we feed off of plants and if the plants don't have sun, there isn't anything alive, man or machine. The premise of using humans as a big battery always seemed so stupid to me. If the machines really wanted to make power without sunlight they'd use nukes directly and skip the wasteful biological middle parts.
