I think it would be more like the mega-corps who don't want things to
last long would bury it, if it was viable.

If it works (unlike the water-fueled cars, supposedly suppressed) the
mega-corps will fight over the patents.

Err, no, no, nogity no.

There was a _short_ period in the 1970's where plutonium
powered pacemakers were, indeed, tested and installed
in patients.

And yes, they worked fine.

However, this was also the time period in which we saw
some pretty big improvements in batteries so the plutonium
units quickly went bye bye.

(There were also some pretty annoying regulatory issues
with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission).

So yeah, they were out there. But no more.

I remember the 1970’s “Staticmaster” polonium antistatic vinyl disc brushes which came complete with radiation warnings.

At least he is now static free.
No pops, or crackles when you play him back on your turntable.

I guess we can thank Putin for the quiet playback. He’s too humble to take
credit.
