Genetic Engineering, Humans

Gene Editing

Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat (CRISPR) is a revolutionary gene editing technology that enables efficient, accurate genome modifications, in a large number of organisms and tissues. The procedure was first identified in a prokaryotic defense system, and consists of sections of genetic code that contain short repetitions of base sequences, followed by spacer DNA… Continue reading Gene Editing

Steps toward becoming Invisible

While the possibility of humans being able to disappear is highly unlikely, this hasn’t stopped movie directors and writers from including it in their stories for many years. Scientists have once again stepped forward in an attempt at making the impossible possible by producing a material which may allow us to do so.  Researchers at… Continue reading Steps toward becoming Invisible

Circus Freaks – Unexpected Talent on Display

Throughout history, many people that were born with physical deformities were ostracized by both their family and the society they lived in. Our modern culture views putting humans on display because they are different as immoral and degrading. This opinion may not have been shared by many of the ‘circus freaks,’ as they unexpectedly found… Continue reading Circus Freaks – Unexpected Talent on Display

Humans, The Future

Biohybrid Robots – Artificial Intelligence with Human Features

The human body works in remarkable ways. Our skeleton creates a base for muscles, ligaments and joints which make it easier for us to perform intricate tasks. Although robots can do many of the same things humans can, their ability to maneuver is limited in several ways. Biohybrid robotics is a field that is rapidly… Continue reading Biohybrid Robots – Artificial Intelligence with Human Features
