In the latest demonstration of nature's efficiencies, a Swiss start-up company has just launched a 'biocomputer' that connects to living, pulsing brain cells and, according to its makers, uses far less energy than traditional, bit-based computers as a result.

Rather than merely integrating biological concepts into computing, FinalSpark's online platform 'taps' into spherical clusters of lab-grown human brain cells called organoids. A total of 16 organoids are housed within four arrays that connect to eight electrodes each and a microfluidics system that supplies water and nutrients for the cells.
