A team of researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital has grown a rat limb in a lab -- paving the way forward for bioengineered human transplants.
A lab-grown brain is the most complete ever developed, equivalent to the brain maturity of a five-week-old foetus.
Researchers from MIT have designed an interface that allows a robot to tap into the reflexes of a human controller to eradicate typical robot clumsiness.
It's always a good day when we can celebrate a milestone alongside the fine folks at NASA, so we take some time on the show to cheer on the team and discuss the high-res photos of Pluto coming from New Horizons.
Ashley and Khail send congratulations to the New Horizons team at NASA for their successful Pluto fly-by mission, talk about potential deals during Amazon's "Prime Day" and check out a cool prosthetic limb with Lego attachments. #TDFlyby
Yet another disabled little duckie gets a new lease on life thanks to the magic of 3D printing.
Iko is a prosthetic arm that can be fitted with Lego bricks so that wearers can take the design of their own hand into their own hands.
Primate mammals aren't the only species with hand preferences. A study shows that kangaroos mostly prefer using their left paws over their right when it comes to eating, grooming and possibly boxing.
Disney Research may someday replace actors inside fuzzy costumes with fully robotic animatronic characters that will roam freely throughout its theme parks. We hope you know how to use a popcorn bucket or a mylar balloon as a defensive weapon.
Khail and Ashley aren't convinced that untethered robot characters roaming Disney theme parks is such a good idea. Plus, they explain how scientists grew a semi-working rat limb and discuss a shoe factory converted into a huge playground. #TDCharacter
