Machine which generates energy using concept of human digestive system.

Creating a biological machine which is similar to our body that produces energy processing organic materials, waste can be utilized as manure and unused energy is stored as fat which can be used later.

    Jul 31 2012: The problem I have with any type of biofuel solution is this: if you trace back up the energy chain, you find that plants (or microbes, etc.) get their energy from sunlight, and with very low efficiency at that. We'd be better off going directly to the source to harvest energy, especially if we harvested solar power from space.

We have started treating our body as machine already and have started fixing it mending it and even growing it. Our body is constantly generating energy even if its day or night. Since we have already made so many wild ideas real why not think about studying how our body generates, stores and utilizes energy and utilizing that knowledge to create a completely natural way of generating energy.

        Jul 31 2012: well i had thought some one will take it in this angle ;). but my concept is not based on generating electricity from human body rather my focus is in replicating one of the simple part of human body "Stomach" to process organic materials to generate sugar which can be used to generate energy and some how store excess sugar as fat which can be utilized later
