Reality: Raising the Bar for Science Fiction
« on: October 08, 2007, 03:01:55 AM »
I've been following a sort of specalised technology website for a while now and occasionally come across some stuff that really makes me go "Wow, this is stuff we're doing now, not in some movie!" This is one of those times.

Scientists have created a NEW LIFE FORM, pairing together base pairs of artificially created chromozones to create a new, unique and and completely manufactured DNA sequence, effectivly the first baby step of artificial life.

There's lots more good tech bits of reality for sci-fi lovers, everything from cybernetic arm prototypes powered by rocket fuel to artificial snot for robots. Enjoy
After a brief retirement while I got married and traveled the country, I'm back. Just getting back into the swing of things for now, but gearing up to hit things up like I used to.
