Watch a spinach leaf that has been transformed into beating human heart tissue. Scientists used the plant to replicate the way blood moves through human tissue. They hope that one day this method can be used to better filter blood to damaged tissue in human hearts.
Even today's smartest drones can't process visual information fast enough to avoid crashing from the slightest change in the environment. MIT researchers believe they have hit upon a solution-more than one, actually-to train drones to move quickly through a crowded, complex environment.
Improved amputation techniques are giving amputees with advanced prosthetic limbs a feeling of control comparable to that of their original arms and legs, according to new research out of MIT. A team of biophysicists and engineers was able to create a natural-feeling prosthetic by taking a smarter approach to amputation.
David Wood, a transhumanist who co-founded Symbian in 1998, is working to develop a transhumanist superdemocracy that uses the best parts of artificial intelligence and communication to draw on the likes of Zoltan Istvan and Peter Thiel in a new movement to create longevity and sustainable abundance for all.
