From Artificial Limbs to Floating Cities Here Are 12 Amazing Scientific Advancements Happening Right Now!
3D Printing Organs
It has been around for a few years now but just recently made breakthroughs bigger than cars or phone cases or toys that have been created before. This is one of the scientific advancements which has started creating organs for human use. Research is currently been conducted on the artificial heart, kidney, and liver structures as well as other major organs. Organs like the heart will be tougher but are definitely possible. Can you imagine the person that kept organs in stock?
The reason the 3D printing is doing so well is that the machine does a layer by layer scan of an actual organ that is already very complicated allowing them to give a much-explained printout. This is crazy but is not as crazy as the ability to print out human skin that craziness is happening as we speak. This can be used to repair damaged skin or for purely cosmetic reasons.
Oh yes, the shot, the needle that pierces your skin and stings when you have Flu. This is one of the newest scientific advancements called the Immune-matrix Patch will allow you to vaccinate yourself with a simple band-aid like a patch. This isn’t just great because it is painless but it has even greater benefits. One it takes a 10th of the vaccine that the syringe does which saves tonnes of money and two, it doesn’t require the glass file syringes, hypodermic needles, trained medical personnel, and bio-hazardous waste disposal. So, again it saves tonnes and tonnes of money and resources. Can you imagine it being a flu season and you just going to town to pick up your flu patch to vaccinate by yourself at home and realistically, this is happening.
a terabyte is really big, a kind of a million terabytes, maybe a trillion. Now, imagine an endless amount of storage, scientists at the University while creating such scientific advancements, have created and are working on advances with this technology. Not only this device store endless information but is pretty much invincible to damage. It is made out of nano-structured glass and has the ability to record and retrieve 5-dimensional digital data by femtosecond laser writing as right now it can only hold about 360TB but the things are quickly escalating, it can go almost 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit and will last longer than anyone on this planet, the technology isn’t being used publicly yet. The reason being it is reserved for preserving historical events first because of its ability to hold an entire library of books. As they have already stored actual copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Newton’s optics, the Magna Carta and King James Bible.
the term cyberware is a pretty new field for scientists. The first new pacer being implanted in the 1950s but that was such a small advancement compared to today. We already have an artificial pancreas for diabetics, as of now it is simply a pod implanted into the skin by the wearer and it pumps insulin into the body.
But there are two types of cyberware today – brainware and bodyware. It is very hard to implant but it can be put into the user’s brain for various reasons. In the time it would be able to upload thoughts to a PC or to the other people’s brainware. This would literally give us all telekinesis; it would also allow us to control things with our mind with simple thoughts as if our minds were Alexa. The other type of cyberware is bodyware and it is much simpler as it works with muscles rather than brainwaves. It has been proven to allow those with prosthetics to easily control their new limbs, isn’t that amazing.
Stem Cells Transplants
We have these transplants for decades, especially for cancer patients. But over the last few years, great advances have been made that could change the entire world as we know it. The Bone-marrow transplant takes healthy blood stem cells from relatives that have a similar DNA pattern and infuses them with damaged cells replacing them altogether. This is often a necessary move in cancer patients whose bone marrow stops working.
In recent years, scientific advancements have been made to allow this transplant to take place in patients with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, stroke victims, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer, Osteoporosis, learning disabilities, spinal cord injuries, and other conditions. Even things as simple as deafness and baldness, this may be able to be done via artificial stem cells that is an advancement in itself or even greater a cloning of healthy stem cells to culture in a lab ready for use.
It isn’t exactly new but how amazing it is that new advancements are being made till this day. We know that wireless light bulbs are possible so that mean the possibilities are nearly limitless. Pretty soon, everyone will be charging their phones in their pockets; this is what we call as wireless power transfer and is the transmission of electrical energy without wires in addition to it is way safer. This wireless technology exactly similar to the one in which we use WiFi for internet without an Ethernet cable or DSL. In a few short years, cords and wire will be a thing of the past. In reality, there will be invisible waves of electrical energy connecting us all. We will be living in an electric current of technology, connecting us in a way we never thought possible.
