The turbines can draw about a milliwatt of power, which would be enough to run a pacemaker. The problem is that the turbines tended to create turbulence, which can cause blood to coagulate into clots. Competing systems avoid the turbulence but have trouble generating enough power."
We can found no scientific discipline, nor a healthy profession on the
technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
