Spinach Leaf Heart

Scientists at at Worcester Polytechnic Institute have successfully managed to grow human heart cells on a scaffolding made from spinach leaf. How? First, they dissolved the leaf's cellular material using detergents, leaving the cellulose background behind. Once completed, they added human heart cells and got them to adhere to the structure. These cells could still beat the way a normal heart should, while the vasculature could support blood flow. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Age Reversing Pill


A group of scientists have developed an age-reversing pill after discovering a key signaling process in DNA repair and cell aging. After human trials are conducted over the next 6-months, NASA wants to give them to astronauts on Mars to protect them from solar radiation. "The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment. This is the closest we are to a safe and effective anti-ageing drug that's perhaps only three to five years away from being on the market if the trials go well," said lead author Professor David Sinclair.

Virtual Reality Tennis Ball

Disney engineers have recently unveiled a system that enables users to accurately catch a real ball while immersed in a virtual reality environment, paving the way for future applications. It consists of three visualizations: rendering a matching virtual ball, the predicted trajectory of the ball, and a target catching point lying on the predicted trajectory. They track the projectile motion of a ball as it is being tossed, and use Unscented Kalman Filtering to generate predictive estimates of its motion.

Automatic Bullseye Dartboard

Former NASA engineer Mark Rober spent the past 3-years creating a robotic dartboard that almost guarantees a bullseye every throw, or at least if the conditions are met. His creation consists of a Vicon motion capture system with 6-cameras that track the dart using infrared LEDs and darts equipped with retro-reflectors attached, which are used determine its exact location in 3D space. The trajectory of the dart can be then calculated with physics to predict where it will hit with extreme accuracy. The dartboard itself is attached to two sliders with a system of six stepper motors to maneuver it around. Once the motion tracking system calculates the bullseye location, a computer then transmits instructions to move the board, and all of this happens in milliseconds.

Michael Airless Tires

For those who haven't heard of Michelin's Tweel, it's basically tire technology that does not use a bladder full of compressed air, thus it cannot burst, leak pressure, or become flat. Instead, the Tweel assembly's inner hub connects to flexible polyurethane spokes which are used to support an outer rim and these engineered compliant components assume the shock-absorbing role provided by the compressed air in a traditional tire. Now, the company has pit their technology against three conventional tires mounted on loaders. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
