Back in 2015, a team at Duke University made a world-first breakthrough, growing functioning human muscle tissue in a laboratory using cells from muscle biopsies called myogenic precursors. Now the research has leapt forward with working muscle being successfully grown from scratch using pluripotent stem cells...Continue Reading Working human muscle tissue grown from skin-derived stem cellsCa
The first human trial examining the safety of a drug designed to reduce the levels of a corrupted protein that is responsible for the devastating effects of Huntington's disease has proven a success. These early, yet exciting results, suggest potential for a new drug that could possibly be adapted to treat other brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's...Continue Reading Human tria
Autonomous drones that can safely navigate obstacles have huge potential for everything from delivering goods to providing disaster relief, but they'll need to prove themselves first. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) recently pitted its autonomous racing drones against a human pilot, and although the AI competitors still have some ground still to make up, there were distinct advantages

Throughout 2017, we experienced many a vivid daydream of dunking into cool, crystal-clear waters to test out the very latest in technology. And not the IP68 rating of the new Galaxy S8, but one of the fast, wild water sport innovations that splashed onto the scene. It was a year that saw high-flying hydrofoils make the big step down from boats to smaller boards and bikes (yes, bikes) and new
the podbike a human powered vehicle with electric assist that hopes to bridge general public’s perception of velomobiles and an active, meaningful lifestyle.The post the dual-motor velomobile podbike is a solution to human transport appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Most humans are right-handed … but what about honeybees? A new study from Australia's University of Queensland indicates that about a quarter of them are, while another quarter are left-handed, and half have no preference. The findings could have implications for the steering of fleets of aerial drones...Continue Reading Bees' left/right-handedness could be applied to human techCategor
the engineers hoped to imitate the comfort of a pet through the interactive design. The post introducing the qoobo cushion, an interactive pet-pillow that responds to human touch appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
We've long praised dolphins as being one of the most intelligent animals on Earth, but that might come with an unfortunate downside. Oxford researchers studying the brains of dolphins have found clear signs of Alzheimer's disease, marking the first time the illness has been detected in a wild animal. In an interesting twist, the discovery may dash the hopes that an extreme calorie-restricted is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
