When you take the human physique down to its most standard elements, you can take it apart and place it back collectively once more in so several techniques.
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 produced a living, organic getting formed from his personal cells and named it OSCAR. The getting does need to have technologies to operate, and every single of its components are interchangeable so exclusive arrangements can be produced.
Vlasman showed off his brain module a handful of years ago, which was a totally electric device, and connected it to a brain module. The two components interacted straight away, and the very same occurred when he added a kidney module and a couple of limbs, just for entertaining.
Watching it move is truly sort of disconcerting.
Vlasman does not agree, saying the prototype modifications 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 types of circumstances.”
It is wild to consider about biological physique components getting controlled by an electric brain. I envision there are all types of applications and techniques 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.
