Cultured Beef is created by painlessly harvesting muscle cells from a living cow. Scientists then feed and nurture the cells so they multiply to create muscle tissue, which is the main component of the meat we eat. It is biologically exactly the same as the meat tissue that comes from a cow.
”At Beyond Meat, we want all of the good and none of the bad. We want to eat delicious meat but we don’t want any of the bad stuff that goes along with it. Is that too much to ask? Well no, actually. Not since we created meat from plants.”
Brain surgery is precision business, and one slip can spell doom for affected patients. Even in one of the most skilled jobs in the world, human error can still be a factor. Researchers from the University of Utah are looking to provide less opportunity for those errors to occur. A robot that the team is developing is able to reduce the time it takes to complete a complicated procedure by 50 times. According to CNN, the robot can reduce the time it takes to drill into the skull from two hours to two-and-a-half minutes.
So you tend to forget data, passwords or information you need? Do you want more security for your devices? You can (for some time now) use an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device), similar to those used for dogs or cats.
Scientists have been developing artificial muscles for some time now. Usually from electrically responsive polymers or even carbon nanotubes, these “muscles” are able to replicate the characteristics or real muscles: contract, expand or stretch. More recently, a research team from MIT has created a different type of artificial muscle with lower expenses.
