Half man, half machine: Scientists engineer first ‘cyborg’ tissue – which uses living human cells and organic polymers on September 7, 2012 in BREAKING NEWS, Miscellaneous Leave a comment 1 human cells and organic polymers” src=”http://220.127.116.11/~etupdate/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Half-man-half-machine-Scientists-engineer-first-cyborg-tissue-which-uses-living-human-cells-and-organic-polymers1.jpg” alt=”Half man, half machine Scientists engineer first ‘cyborg’ tissue – which uses living human cells and organic polymers” width=”300″ height=”300″ /> Half man, half machine Scientists engineer first ‘cyborg’ tissue – which uses living human cells and organic polymers Harvard scientists created ‘cyborg’ skin from neurons, heart cells, and nano-electronic wiring. Wiring allows scientists to detect and respond to pH changes on the tissue’s surface, the same as human skin. It like it’s something out of a science-fiction movie – genius scientists engineer a synthetic skin that’s part living, part electronics. But scientists at Harvard University have done just that, creating meshes of electronic and biological tissue. The end result is cyborg tissue, which is created from electrodes and wires combined on a Nano-scale. Engineering humanity: Scientists at Harvard have found a way to create cyborg skin, using nano-wires to mesh and human cells High tech: Here, cardiac cells are pictured with a nano-electroic electrode highlighted The results, published in Nature Materials, detail how
