Tiny fish-shaped robot ‘swims’ around picking up microplastics – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Microplastics are found almost everywhere on Earth and can be harmful to animals if they are ingested. But it’s hard to remove such tiny particles from the environment, especially once they settle into nooks and crannies at the bottom of waterways. Now, researchers in ACS ‘ Nano Letters have created a light-activated fish robot that … Read more

Autonomous Biohybrid Fish – Made From Human Cardiac Cells – Swims Like the Heart Beats

By Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences February 11, 2022 Device offers insights into artificial muscular pumps, a step toward building an artificial heart. Harvard University researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from Emory University, have developed the first fully autonomous biohybrid fish from human stem-cell derived cardiac muscle cells. The artificial … Read more

Scientists Made a ‘Fish’ From Human Cardiac Cells, And It Swims Like a Beating Heart

With its tail flipping rhythmically from side to side, this strange synthetic fish scoots around in its salt and glucose solution, using the same power as our beating hearts. This nifty miniaturized circulatory system, developed by scientists at Harvard and Emory universities, can keep swimming to the beat for more than 100 days. The inventors … Read more

Biohybrid fish made from human cardiac cells swims like the heart beats – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Harvard University researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from Emory University, have developed the first fully autonomous biohybrid fish from human stem-cell derived cardiac muscle cells. The artificial fish swims by recreating the muscle contractions of a pumping heart, bringing researchers one step closer to developing a more complex artificial muscle pump and providing a platform … Read more
