In Recent scientific experiments, scientists and researchers have created a living robot at the Vermont and tufts university.
This living organism that was named as ‘Xenobots’. This name was actually derived from an African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis). These scientists and researchers were able to create self-healing robots, which has the capability of outperforming a lot of things.
Researchers took the stem cell from the embryo and increased their numbers further developing them.
Has anyone wondered what would happen if you take a cell from a frog embryo and grow into a new organism, that was evolved by the process followed in calculations, especially by computers?
Scientists and researchers have created something that is called ‘world’s first living machine’. Stem cells are unspecialized which has the ability to develop into different cell types.
Here is the quick video of living robot
This event and recent discovery throw us back in time that depicts the movie name “Terminator” where the robot-machine is hidden under living tissue (Human Flesh).
These robots which are named as ‘Xenobots ’ do not resemble any amphibians in the animal kingdom. This tiny embryo stem cell measures only 0.04 inches (1 millimeter) wide and made up of living tissues, biologically modified assembled in the body, programmed by computer models. While experimenting on these cells when scientists sliced one robot into two pieces it healed the cut all by itself and kept moving. A study says these biological machines are safer for the environment and human health.
The most amazing part that caught scientist’s attention was self-healing and self-sustaining properties without food for weeks
Scientists also reported that these can be used to transport medicine in the patient’s body. Though the computer and machine were said to be non-living things, the discovery of this new living robot will change the world. A new step towards revolution. But these living robots do not have any shiny metal gears or robotic arms. Instead, they look like tiny fish moving.
‘Joshua Bongard’ lead researchers at Vermont University said “These are novel living machines” said in the news. He also stated these are neither traditional robot nor a known animal species. These are living programmable organisms.
