Morpheus: “We don’t know who struck first, us [humans] or them [the machines]. But we know that it was us that scorched the sky. They were dependent on solar power and it was believed that they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun.

“Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

“The human body generates more bioelectricity than a 120-volt battery. And over 25,000 BTUs of body heat. Combined with a form of fusion the machines had found all the energy they would ever need.

“There are fields, Neo, endless fields where human beings are no longer born. We are grown.

“For the longest time, I wouldn’t believe it. And then I saw the fields with my own eyes, watched them liquefy the dead, so they could be fed intravenously to the living. And standing there facing the pure, horrifying precision, I came to realize the obviousness of the truth.

“What is the Matrix? Control. The Matrix is a computer-generated dream world built to keep us under control in order to change a human being into this.”

 

A battery

Now a University of Pennsylvania biologist has started us down the road to making the Matrix a reality.

Today’s tech-savvy soldier with night-vision goggles, radio and wearable computer is primarily battery-powered. Now biologist Lawrence Rome of the University of Pennsylvania has found a far better way to recharge the 21st- century soldier—and civilian, for that matter. The solution, funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and the National Institutes of Health, is a backpack that harnesses the up-and-down motion of the hips when a person walks and converts the mechanical energy into electricity. “I pulled my 30-year-old external-frame backpack out of my closet,” Rome says. Weighting the pack, he set it on springs so that it would bounce with each step and then coupled it to a generator. Carrying weights of between 44 and 84 pounds, testers generated up to 7.4 watts, more than enough to directly power a full flight of electronic gear or to recharge batteries as they die.
