MECHANIZED NEPHILIM CREATION? THIS BIOHYBRID ROBOT WALKS USING LAB-GROWN MOUSE MUSCLES

Share this!

Today, “robot” is largely used to describe an entirely different type of worker — an automaton usually made from steel and plastic. But that connotation may soon begin to swing back towards Capek’s organic vision. A team of researchers came up with a new design for remote-controlled walking robots that run on lab-grown muscle tissue and light, according to a recent paper published in Science Robotics. Their unique biohybrid even bot set a new speed record for this kind of part-machine, part-meat system… (READ MORE)
