Researchers test ‘biohybrid robots’ that merge living tissue with machines

Researchers from the University of Tokyo have fused together living tissue from a rat with mechanical components to create a biohybrid system that can mimic human fingers. In the video shared by National Geographic, the finger-like¬†system can be seen performing¬†precise tasks that require dexterity and are traditionally more difficult for robots to accomplish. Scientists that … Continue reading Researchers test ‘biohybrid robots’ that merge living tissue with machines
