Now In Production: Human Skin Grown In a Robot-Controlled German Skin Factory
Robots and computers control the skin-making process, which takes place in a sterile, climate-controlled setting. The skin broth is closely monitored for any signs of infection and computers guide the lasers and blades that cut swatches of skin. picked by zircon77777 1 week ago

 Skin from a factory
Skin from a factory
There is an increasing demand for skin. Manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics and medical engineering products need it in order to test the compatibility of their products with human skin. At the 2009 BIO International Convention in Atlanta, Fraunhofer researchers will be demonstrating how artificial skin can be manufactured in a fully automatic process. picked by AutumnLotus 2 years ago

 Spray-on Skin
Spray-on Skin
The skin gun is not science fiction—it's a prototype medical device that literally sprays skin cells onto burn victims to re-grow skin.

It uses stem cells from the patient's own body; burns look healed in mere days. This is amazing. picked by T1000 3 months ago

 Scientists Find A Fingerprint Of Evolution Across The Human Genome
Scientists Find A Fingerprint Of Evolution Across The Human Genome
The Human Genome Project revealed that only a small fraction of the 3 billion “letter” DNA code actually instructs cells to manufacture proteins, the workhorses of most life processes. This has raised the question of what the remaining part of the human genome does. How much of the rest performs other biological functions, and how much is merely residue of prior genetic events? Evolut... read full post picked by Blankspace73 3 years ago

Scientists teach robots to deceive humans
"We have developed algorithms that allow a robot to determine whether it should deceive a human or other intelligent machine and we have designed techniques that help the robot select the best deceptive strategy to reduce its chance of being discovered," said Ronald Arkin, a professor in the Georgia Tech School of Interactive Computing, in a release about the study. picked by zircon77777 8 months ago
