Scientists Pump Up Lab-Grown Muscles for Robots With a New Magnetic Workout
Lab-grown tissues could one day be grafted into people with heavily damaged muscles and restore their ability to navigate the world freely. Synthetic muscles could also coat robots, providing them with human-like senses, flexible motor control, and the ability to heal after inevitable scratches and scrapes.
‘Mind-blowing’ IBM chip speeds up AI
The cores are wired together in a network inspired by the white-matter connections between parts of the human cerebral cortex
Soft Optical Fibers Block Pain While Moving And Stretching With The Body
The new study grew out of the team’s desire to expand the use of optogenetics beyond the brain. Optogenetics is a technique by which nerves are genetically engineered to respond to light.
