A team of researchers at the University of Connecticut and University of Toronto — consisting of engineers, chemists, and biologists — have developed a new of sensor designed to let artificial skin detect pressure, vibrations, and magnetic fields. With these developments, it’s possible that this technology might be able to allow burn victims and amputees regain the sense of touch via the artificial skin.

Here’s Regular Sewing Thread Woven into Strong Artificial Muscles…

Regular Old Sewing Thread Can Be Woven Into Strong Artificial Muscles

Since there are a glut of audio-animatronic characters at any of Disney’s amusement parks, it’s logical that the company’s research division is working hard to find ways to make them more lifelike. Now, their researchers may have found an inexpensive solution to making artificial muscles by using conductive sewing thread that’s available at any fabric store.

The 1st Synthetic Organ Transplant equals "HOO-RAY!!!"

“HOO-RAY” why, exactly?

Well, since this revolutionary and life-saving surgical breakthrough was successful in its first trial (and hopefully things continue as such in subsequent future trials), this could spell the end of these things:
1) No more long waits on patient transplant waiting lists,
2) No more risks of organ rejection post-operation, and
2) No more lives HAVE to be sacrificed to save another life.
