Imagine soft robots that can bend, walk and grip. That's exactly what scientists have created in this latest study, which may herald a new age of robotics.
Researchers may have created a material that can actually heal itself. Scientists have developed a flexible polymeric material that's capable of self-repairing.
Scientists may have created a new material that self-heals with water. The multiphase polymer, which was created from the genetic code of squid ring teeth, may one day extend the life of medical implants, fiber-optic cables and other hard to repair in place objects.
Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia have identified how the kidney cells' self-destruct messages are spread by finding what may lead to improved kidney function in the elderly.
Injured jellyfish have a remarkable way to self-repair themselves. Scientists have taken a closer look at jellyfish and have found that they actually reorganize their existing anatomy in order to regain symmetry after being injured.
