Depending on your views about science and technology, this is either the future of humankind or the beginning of the end:
Researchers have implanted snails with tiny biofuel cells that capture electrical power from the snail’s blood. The electrified snail munches on carrots while the device extracts power from glucose and oxygen in the snail’s blood, producing a steady trickle of electricity for months

The singularity approacheth....
extrapolate that to humans and we are totally in matrix.. :-)
but I think it's just not efficient to do this involving snails (or any other complex organisms), because a lot of energy is lost to building and supporting the snail organism, so I am almost sure that this is not going to be practical and thus we as a species should be safe here.
