New Plastic Bleeds When Damaged, Heals When Exposed to Light: Tupperware 2.0

New Plastic Bleeds When Damaged, Heals When Exposed to Light: Tupperware 2.0
We’ve seen circuitry that can heal itself. Now there’s a new kind of plastic that can not only heal but “bleed” as well. It has small molecular links that break when it’s cut or scratched, causing a red splotch to appear around the site of the damage.

It’s a science fiction staple – a character gets blasted, sliced or run over, but instead of dying it just stares at its wound while its body repairs itself as everyone watches in disbelief. Here’s a development that brings us just that much closer to that: circuitry that can heal itself, developed by a team of engineers at the University of Illinois.

Study on Salamanders May Hold Key to Human Tissue Regeneration – or a Monster.

Study on Salamanders May Hold Key to Human Tissue Regeneration – or a Monster.
In a study published in Nature magazine, a group of scientists revealed that human cells may be induced to regenerate appendages in the same way that salamanders do. Meaning we can also grow salamander limbs. Kidding. Apparently the cells on the stumps of a salamander “only” need to revert to a “less mature” state instead of a day 1 embryonic state to differentiate and turn into the cells that will make up the new limb.
