London: IBM has unveiled a prototype of its new brain-inspired computer that is fed by "electronic blood."

The computer firm said that it learns from nature by building computers fuelled and cooled by a liquid, like human minds, the BBC reported.

The human brain has phenomenal computing power and uses only 20 watts of energy - an efficiency that the computer company is keen to match.

The firm`s new "redox flow " system pumps " electronic blood" through a computer, and carries power in and taking heat out.

A prototype was shown this week at the technology giant`s Zurich lab by Dr Patrick Ruch and Dr Bruno Michel.
