Scientists develop living human skin on robotic finger

When the finger bent, the skin stretched with it. It was even able to heal: when the researchers cut the skin and then covered the wound with a collagen bandage, the layers stitched themselves together and, after about a week, the wound was no longer visible.

What do you think?

Interesting. Material science has come a long way. I still think Nitinol, metal with memory, is one of the coolest things out there. Plastics in our devices have improved a ton over the last 5 years. Frickin’ consumer drones are an incredible technology to play around with.

Exciting times.
