Bio nanotechnology

Biology already does most of the things we wish we could do with nanotechnology.

But how about using virii to generate electricity? It can be done.

It's possible that the domestication of the virus will be one of the greatest achievements of this century, both for medical and other purposes. Of course, it's also possible that it will be one of the most dangerous things we have ever done.

Kind of similar to splitting the atom.

Is there any technological advance that has not been both a ploughshare and a sword?
