So this is happening. Biochemical researchers Pierre-Alexis Mouthuy and Andrew Carr at The University Of Oxford in England want to start growing skin and muscle tissues onto robots before transplanting them to humans. What could possibly go wrong?

The idea is that it the skin could experience the movement, stress and strain of actual use. Right now current grafts are used straight from the culturing environment, and can be easily damaged. Robots wearing human skin… Getting a taste for it… Desiring our skin… Then taking our skin… Seems like a great idea.

Get ready for a planet of skinned-alive humans crawling around in extreme pain while robots pretend that they are us.
