A 150-year-old thought experiment inspired a group of scientists from the Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Canada to create a surprisingly fast engine that runs on a unique fuel -- information.

The engine, described in a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, turns the random jiggling of tiny particles into stored energy and has the potential to significantly improve the speed and affordability of computers and bio-nano technologies.
