Israeli Biotech Startup Renewal Bio Creates Synthetic Embryo

Renewal Bio, an Israeli biotech startup, wants to use the potential of cutting-edge stem cell research to help people live longer and better lives. Through this stem cell technology, the startup is on the mission to create synthetic embryos of people to harvest tissues for medical transplantations. In this research in stem-cell technology and artificial wombs, the founder of Renewal Bio and biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Jacob Hanna, has started with mouse stem cells where he can form highly realistic-looking mouse embryos and keep them growing in an artificial womb for several days until they develop beating hearts, flowing blood, and cranial folds.  As per Hanna's research published in the Cell journal, this is the first time an embryo at an advanced...

How Elon Musk to Launch Optimus Humanoid is Self-Contradictory

The man who once accused Sophia robot of violence is now contradicting himself. Elon Musk launches the Optimus humanoid. Recently, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Chief Executive Elon Musk got a revelation. He discovered that overreliance on factory robots sent Tesla car manufacturing to "the 2018 fluff bot production hell" when humans were better for it.  To many, and the world afraid of losing their jobs to AI, this revelation could be a breath of relief, but no, don't just change your mind yet; there are many twists to this puzzle. Tesla man is not thinking of replacing bots but planning humanoids. Musk's Texas company now plans to deploy thousands of humanoids that are robots with near-human emotional skills. Within its factories, these humanoids, known as Tesla Bot or Optimus, will eve...

China Xpeng P5 Sedans Challenge Tesla Autonomous Driving

China Xpeng P5 Sedans are here to challenge Tesla's autonomous driving cars with the new ADAS technology. The Advanced Driver Assistance System, or ADAS, emulates Tesla's autonomous self-driving software that is programmed to auto-navigate across city streets. On Saturday, Xpeng, a car manufacturer in Guangzhou, said that certain of its P5 sedans equipped with lidar sensors would be able to acquire city Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP) software via over-the-air upgrades and drive autonomously in urban areas. Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Xpeng, He Xiaopeng, stated that it is the first Chinese automotive firm to launch an ADAS for city-level driving. With the roll-out of city NGP, Xpeng P5 Sedans, the company contributes to expanding ADAS usage scenarios from covering hig...

Shefali Bohra and Debra Babalola Got Dotplot for Breast Cancer

Dotplot is a monthly self-check guide for monitoring breast health at home. It's meant to help women catch breast cancer in its earliest stages by empowering and inspiring them to maintain a consistent self-examination schedule. Founded by Shefali Bohra and Debra Babalola, Dotplot helps women observe an anomaly in breast tissues over time. It is important to note that the product is not a machine that can immediately conclude if the anomaly is cancer or not. It needs clinical correlation. Dotplot requires users to go through a one-time onboarding process, during which they are prompted to provide information about their period cycle (if they have one) to provide an accurate date for their self-check. After entering their bra size and breast form, as well as sliding the handheld d...

Breakthrough: LyGenesis Biotech Startup to Regenerate Organs

As reported in MIT Technology Review, "in the coming weeks, a volunteer in Boston, Massachusetts, will be the first to trial a new treatment that could end up creating a second liver in their body." In fact, in the following months, patients suffering from the end-stage liver disease will earn a fresh lease of life that would gain them up to six livers in their bodies. This revolutionary advancement in biotechnology will save people with devastating liver diseases who are not eligible for transplants. But which is this biotech startup making this groundbreaking impact? Introducing LyGenesis, a biotech startup that offers cell therapies that target some of the largest unmet medical needs, from Type 1 diabetes to end-stage Liver and renal disease. The cell therapies completely upend o...

UNSW Team Invents Smart Fabric for Biological Muscle

Australian biomedical engineers at UNSW have developed a smart fabric for artificial muscle, hoping to revolutionize the future of soft robotics and wearable exoskeletons. This endeavor is a great move in the efforts to advance assistive technology. Researchers showed Reuters how the fabric could change shape by making models of a butterfly and a flower that could move in complicated ways. This smart fabric can mimic biological muscles in responding to complex environmental stimuli. Thanh Nho Do, director of the Medical Robotics Lab at the University of New South Wales and the team's leader, has grander ambitions and thinks he and his team could use the material to create a smart human suit like the Iron Man suit or Spider-Man suit, which would be highly adjustable to the bodies ...

Yale University Scientists Restores Life in Dead Pigs with OrganEx

Scientists in the United States have utilized new technology to restore numerous basic functions in over 100 pigs that had been dead for more than an hour, thereby dismantling many notions around death. The study could lead to a discovery of a greater supply of donor organs. Three years ago, a remarkable experiment restored some brain functions to decapitated pigs at Yale University. Anesthetized animals have been revived and killed by an artificial heart attack in the most recent advancement of the research team. In a method known as OrganEx, 13 substances that enhance cellular health and reduce inflammation were pumped to restore life in dead pigs. Several organs regained their capacity to contract once the virus had been eliminated from the body, including the liver, kidneys, ...
