A new bioprinting method developed at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) creates intricately patterned 3D tissue constructs with multiple types of cells and tiny blood vessels. The work represents a major step toward a longstanding goal of tissue engineers: creating human tissue constructs realistic enough to test drug safety and effectiveness.
Scientists at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland have devleoped the "cheetah-cub robot," a four-legged metallic critter modeled after a house cat.
Google researchers have built a neural network comprised of 16,000 computer processors in an effort to simulate the human brain.
Oscar the Cat - who had his back feet severed by a tractor - is walking again with a new pair of bionic limbs.
