This Is The First 3D Heart Printed Using Patient’s Biological Materials

In a major medical breakthrough today, scientists over at Tel Aviv University has printed the first 3D heart using a patient’s cells and biological materials. You heard that right. It is totally a 3D-printed heart, though not quite the 3D printing you have come to known (like obviously). Described as the world’s first 3D vascularized engineered heart, the 3D heart is a complete organ with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers. Imagine that! All the works that made a heart! Now, if that isn’t a big stride forward in regenerative medicine. Continue reading This Is The First 3D Heart Printed Using Patient’s Biological Materials

In Future, Facebook May Make Your Still Profile Image Come Alive

There is something about animating a still portrait, however subtle the animation might be, that intrigues everyone. Unlike absolute still image, an animated portrait seems a whole lot more interactive and hence, a lot less monotonous. It literally breathes life into an otherwise mundane, motionless picture. This is perhaps the reason why we have Apple Live Photos and Google Motion Photos. But those are essentially super short video clip and it is pulled off during imaging, which means, nothing can be done with still images that are not captured with Live Photo or Motion Photo. What researchers over at Tel Aviv University have cooked up is a lot more advanced. Continue reading In Future, Facebook May Make Your Still Profile Image Come Alive
