Harvard creates Cyborg tissue, Cyborgs are becoming real !

extreme tech wrote:These cyborg tissues are half living cells, half electronics. As far as the cells are concerned, they’re just normal cells that behave normally — but the electronic side actually acts as a sensor network, allowing a computer to interface directly with the cells. In the case of cyborg heart tissue, the researchers have already used the embedded nanowires to measure the contractions (heart rate) of the cells.
To create cyborg flesh, you start with a three-dimensional scaffold that encourages cells to grow around them. These scaffolds are generally made of collagen, which makes up the connective tissue in almost every animal. The Harvard engineers basically took normal collagen, and wove nanowires and transistors into the matrix to create nanoelectric scaffolds (nanoES). The neurons, heart cells, muscle, and blood vessels were then grown as normal, creating cyborg tissue with a built-in sensor network.

HAH. That is SUPER COOL.

It looks like they're making computer controlled organic cells, which is really really REALLY awesome. I mean, it's almost certainly not going to let Beatrice lift a 500 kg warhead, but the fact that it even exists is utterly ridiculous. Oh man, I'm so excited!!

We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

To quote the book of face: I fucking love science. Stuff that sounds like sci-fi is slowly becoming a reality... now if only those scientists working toward a live warp-drive test would hurry up...
