That thing is not only frightening by the way it moves, but cap it off with that high-pitched buzzing...terrifying.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Half man, half machine: Scientists engineer first 'cyborg' tissue - which uses living human cells and organic polymers | Mail Online

Quote:
It like it’s something out of a science-fiction movie – genius scientists engineer a synthetic skin that’s part living, part electronics.

But scientists at Harvard University have done just that, creating meshes of electronic and biological tissue.

The end result is cyborg tissue, which is created from electrodes and wires combined on a Nano-scale.

The results, published in Nature Materials, detail how scientists in the lab embedded electrical nanowires into the lab-grown flesh.
Dr Charles Lieber, who is a chemistry professor at Harvard and the leader of the research team, told the Harvard Gazette: ‘With this technology, for the first time, we can work at the same scale as the unit of biological system without interrupting it.
‘Ultimately, this is about merging tissue with electronics in a way that it becomes difficult to determine where the tissue ends and the electronics begin.’

The Gazette notes that the researches initially worried about how the ‘skin,’ once implanted, would sense and react to chemical and electrical changes.
Normal human skin is capable of sensing oxygen, pH, and other elements in the air, and reacts to each one accordingly.
The challenge, then, was engineering skin that would do the same.
First, a 3D mesh of organic polymer is laid out with nanoscale wires within. According to Nature Materials, the wires serve as ‘critical sensing elements.’

Then, they worked in human neurons, heart cells, and blood vessels.
When the substrate was dissolved, researchers had mesh they could contour into the shapes they needed.
Because of the embedded wiring, scientists were able to obtain accurate readings of pH.
Human cyborgs have been imagined in Hollywood for decades, famously in the Star Trek and Terminator franchises.
In both, the cyborg characters have decidedly human appearances, though below the epidermis still lurks a robotic core of metal.
However, the Harvard scientists are not looking to such lofty ends.
Dr Lieber told the Gazette said their invention could greatly benefit the pharmaceutical industry, which could test its drugs on the cyborg skin instead of few layers of cultured cells.

Oh, shit.
In World First, Scientists Surgically Implant a Working Bionic | Australian Popular Science
Quote:

We've been waiting on the prospect of a bionic eye for a while now; being able to surgically give sight to the sightless would be a medical breakthrough, and we're right on the cusp. Exhibit A: In a world first, scientists have successfully implanted a prototype bionic eye that has helped a woman see shapes.

Researchers from the government-funded consortium Bionic Vision Australia made the announcement in a statement yesterday; in it the implantee said she "didn't know what to expect, but all of a sudden, I could see a little flash - it was amazing." The team is hoping they can start to "build" shapes based on what she sees, eventually creating a bionic eye that works like its organic counterpart.

The prototype device is set up in a lab. Electrodes in the implant stimulate nerve cells, and in the controlled environment scientists can get feedback from the user on the "flashes of light." That could help them adjust until the "flashes of light" reflect the actual environment enough to be helpful. It's not full vision, but it's an early step toward it.

The next stage, the scientists say, is incorporating an external camera into a device, and creating versions with more electrodes. With 98, a person could be able to see large objects; with 1,024, they could recognise faces and large print.
