Indoctrination at its finest!

Okay, well you can indoctrinate yourself? To learn something sort of useful! Yay! Ha, ha. Okay let’s move on.

So, science went to work again and did something super cool. Someone designed a prototype glove that vibrates onto your handle seemingly randomly while you do something.

More Immortality?

Okay guys, this time we’re going to make PEOPLE live forever. In our hearts. Nah, I’m just kidding let’s talk about something cool today.

So, like the science geek I am, I’m here to tell you that a certain scientist (Wouter De Haes), discovered that one of the world’s most widely used diabetic medication also slow down aging and increases lifespan. You learn something new everyday, right?

Mending a broken heart.

We’re talking about this literally. There isn’t really any science to help you guys if you’re going through some hard times. Sorry. 

ANYWAY! Let’s talk about what scientists have done recently! These guys have now successfully engineered tissue which beats, just like hearts. This has been done, not only in labs, but has been implanted in animals as well. So with this wonderful new technology, millions of people with heart problems could seek successful treatment. 

Trick is, like MOST research, it is not completely yet and does not completely resemble the human heart. Early versions of this tissue fell apart where as human heart tissue is elastic. It simply just isn’t as easy as sticking on more tissue to a heart like we do with skin. Hopefully, in the future scientists combine whatever technology they have to complete this method of heart transplanting.
