Do cyborgs really need to eat? Granted, there’s no practical way to answer this question at the moment, but with robotics technology improving rapidly each year, the question of fuel sources is a fascinating one. Is organic fuel for cyborgs a necessity? Couldn’t they just power up throughout the day by plugging in a USB or a charger?
