Fixing Brains With Engineered Neural Tissue

Micro Tissue Engineered Neural Networks (micro-TENNs) are preformed neural network structures which can serve as a foundation for reconstruction of damaged brain pathways. These engineered tissues are being injected into the brains of lab rats for testing. If the neural network tissue is “trained” with a specific knowledge set before being injected, it might become […]

Printing a Cyborg Ear

Merging functional electronics with 3D printing that adds layers of a hydrogel matrix allows researchers to grow cartilage tissue and form a simple bionic ear. Now they just need to add blood vessels and skin. Printable ‘bionic’ ear melds electronics and biology 0 [princeton.edu] Using 3-D printing tools, scientists at Princeton University have created a […]

i-Limb Hand

The i-LIMB Hand – [touchbionics.com] The worlds first fully articulating and commercially available bionic hand. Touch Bionics is a leading developer of advanced upper-limb prosthetics (ULP). One of the two products now commercially available from the company, the i-LIMB Hand, is a first-to-market prosthetic device with five individually powered digits. This artificial limb looks and […]

AR Displays

Augmented reality displays can be delivered in as many different ways as data can be displayed. Displays that are projected onto a surface, or “heads-up” style displays on see through screens or glasses or contact lenses, and even display information that is projected onto the retina of the eyeball are all possible. Future of the […]

Rebuilding Our Bodies

We now have the ability to rebuild our bodies; at least in a limited sense, but that limitation is shrinking rapidly. Prosthetic Replacements Artificial replacement limbs and dentures have been used for thousands of years. Roman Capua Leg – [wikipedia.org] Prosthetic replacements have dramatically improved their functionality and their human-like appearance with increases in technological […]
