It turns out that ants are capable of making career moves.

Computer tracking of ants shows that colonies have three main occupations: nursing the queen, cleaning, and foraging for food.

The best part is that it recharges 1000 times faster than current batteries. Good things do come in small packages Slight Smile ...
