The geniuses over at Harvard and MIT have come up with biocompatible transistors that can be wired into human tissue essentially combining cybernetics and tissue engineering. They’ve created a 3-D tissue scaffold out of epoxy (a nontoxic material) that can support cell growth but also contains nanowires for electronic sensors. These “living” sensors could then be implanted into living tissue and be used to monitor cellular electrical activity. The sensors could measure things like inflammation, pH changes and other biochemical events in patients which could advance the treatment of cardiac, neurological disease.
