    I was joking… But there are, actually, a hole host of problems, beyond the electric current…

    hahaha thats how the words come out when im thinkin in a rage about ignoramous’ and there naive thoughts…def was a retard, “take 2″ type of sentence now that youve pointed it out

  3. AcanLord says:

    i know. but i think you still you could use this as a alternative. also, i`m uncertain if the collagen itself that has been cultured is suitable for this particular purpose. Having a collagen skeleton of a human organ with the cells washed out and having a large jar of cultured collagen from say,Nemopilema nomurai are rather different scenarios. i`m not even confident that all cultured collagen is type-1 which is the kind found in organs.Not skin collagen or one of the other kinds.

    SSooo..ya really want to start that comment out with that first sentence huh…..

    Made from your own stem cells so guaranteed no rejection!!! 8)) LOL every ugly mans dream.

  6. adolthitler says:

    The collagen is easily farmed to make synthetic organs. You don’t need silicone to make organs.

  7. adolthitler says:

    There is already better technology for stripping the cells out of a pigs heart, and using the collagen framework to introduce human stem cells to produce a heart.

    So, when does this thing break loose and start eating people?

  9. gorgeonthis says:

    lot of u people are dumb as fuck…this is just a “prototype”. The beggining stages of another experiment. just cause this is one solitary piece of microscopic silicone doing acrobatics in a petri dish doesnt mean they couldnt engineer millions of these to work together somehow in the future. Just cause it doesnt look impressive at this point doesnt mean it is not meaningful work u dumb pieces of human trash. use ur goddamn brain and think beyond ur dumb ass simple troll like explanations!

    why is everyone down on this? this is a step towards awesome

    Such as? Because they are waaaaaaaaaay more pragmatic and less ridiculous ways that this to propagate heart cells lol. Tell me what uses putting rat heart cells on a piece of silicon then constricting them would have? Considering that cells take damage and respond to negative stimuli which would be considered pain. Imagine your heart having electricity being pumped through it at random. Please show me how I’m wrong.

  13. jackbrightside says:

    is it intelligent to assume the most efficient and effective technology is biotech?

  14. AcanLord says:

    its not really that stupid. the materials and methods used in this have real world practical applications in medicine.

  15. AcanLord says:

    you do recognize the possible applications for this? because i do. it suggests we may be able to use this type of silicone in regenerative medicine. it maybe be possible to use this as a stand in for collagen protein when we attempt to build synthetic organs.

  16. masterscheme1 says:

    Yes when Scientists are high… yeah.. they do stupid shit like this.

  17. masterscheme1 says:

    Dude…. watching how to build a beating heart. From National geographic explorer. This might look cool but the corelation between this and rebuilding a heart is not very pragmatic. I honestly don’t even see the point other than just making a weird rat heart thing on silicon.
