When you take the human physique down to its most standard elements, you can take it apart and place it back with each other once more in so lots of approaches.
That is why biologist Cornelis Vlasman sees it as a biological LEGO technique. He’s constructed a clickable technique of interchanging organs and has brought it to life…sort of.
In his fictional experiment, he designed a living, organic getting formed from his personal cells and named it OSCAR. The getting does require technologies to function, and each and every of its components are interchangeable so exclusive arrangements can be designed.
Vlasman showed off his brain module a couple of years ago, which was a totally electric device, and connected it to a brain module. The two components interacted instantly, and the identical occurred when he added a kidney module and a couple of limbs, just for exciting.
Watching it move is in fact sort of disconcerting.
Vlasman does not agree, saying the prototype adjustments the human physique from a closed technique to an open-supply technique.
“If an organ gets ill, you can quickly replace it with a new one particular. The modular physique will develop into alterable and adaptable to all sorts of scenarios.”
It is wild to believe about biological physique components getting controlled by an electric brain. I picture there are all sorts of applications and approaches to integrate this when it comes to stem cell investigation and organ replacement going forward.
I just do not know if I’m ready for science fiction to develop into reality.
