a study from researchers at the University of Vermont scrapes living cells from frog embryos and reassembles them into entirely new programmable life-forms. The team states these synthetic living exobiologics, which can carry out a variety of programs, possess no reproductive organs and simply degrade safely to become unfunctional after seven days.

First living microbots engineered.

In the world of the microbe, many strange and yet to be discovered wonders exist with a multitude of applications waiting to be utilized. Biohybrid microrobots are an autonomous part of this mini-universe, composed of a living organism integrated with artificial materials, they traditionally exhibit dimensions of less than 1 mm so they are small enough to travel through the human body. Biohybrid microbots are … Continue reading First living microbots engineered.
