Cyborgs, they will flood the planet! Found a way to grow electrodes directly in the body

Published

One of the problems that developers of various brain implants face is the difficulty of implanting ready-made chips into biological tissues. However, there is another way – to grow a network of electrodes directly in cells and using biological materials. This will potentially allow the creation of human-machine hybrids.

Scientists from the universities of Linköping, Lund and Gothenburg have created a special gel that allows you to start the process of creating electrodes in living organisms without having to implant them. The test subjects were zebrafish and medical leeches. After the injection of the gel, electrodes formed in the brain, heart, and tail fins of the fish, as well as around clumps of nervous tissue.

By making certain changes in the chemical composition [геля], we were able to develop electrodes that were accepted by brain tissue and the immune system. Zebrafish are an excellent model for studying the formation of organic electrodes in the brain”explained Roger Olsson, professor at the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University.

And Magnus Berggren, a professor at the University of Linköping, explained that the new invention allows you to literally grow electronics. And it does not affect the body itself.

For decades, we’ve been trying to create electronics that mimic biology. Now we let biology shape the electronics for us“, he said.

Potentially, this will allow in the future to create integrated circuits in the human body, which will have a huge impact on the treatment of neurological diseases. Although, as the authors of the study acknowledge, there are still a number of problems along the way.

The device uses 232-layer Micron memory and a Phison controller. Retail options will come with 1, 2 and 4 TB of flash memory. Interestingly, the T700 will have both a version with a heatsink (with advanced fins and no noisy fan) and a regular version without any cooling. One of the materials demonstrates very well what a cooling system is.

Does the Nokia brand justify this price? Nokia C12 Plus unveiled with very old platform, 2GB RAM and $100 price tag

Does the Nokia brand justify this price Nokia C12 Plus

The Nokia C12 line of smartphones has expanded with another model. Previously, the C12 and C12 Pro were already presented, now the C12 Plus has joined them.

Does the Nokia brand justify this price?  Nokia C12 Plus unveiled with very old platform, 2GB RAM and $100 price tag

If the C12 Pro only had a larger battery compared to the C12, then the C12 Plus is the C12 Pro, but with a different memory configuration: only 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory. That being said, the C12 Plus has a microSD slot that the C12 Pro doesn’t have. Why so many very similar models in one segment is unclear.

In any case, all other parameters have not changed, that is, the smartphone received a 6.3-inch HD + screen, a very weak and old 28-nanometer Unisoc 9863A1 SoC and a main camera with a resolution of only 8 megapixels. In India, they charge $100 for a novelty.
