In another lifetime, if they had been allowed to follow their natural development, the stem cells taken from embryonic frogs would have turned into skin and heart tissue within living, breathing animals.In another lifetime, if they had been allowed to follow their natural development, the stem cells taken from embryonic frogs would have turned into skin and heart tissue within living, breathing animals.

Scientists Have Built The First-Ever Robots Constructed Entirely Out of Living Cells

Researchers hope the living robots, made up of masses of cells working in coordination, can help unlock the mysteries of cellular communication.Researchers hope the living robots, made up of masses of cells working in coordination, can help unlock the mysteries of cellular communication.

Tiny living robots made from frog cells could soon swim inside your body - CNET

The line between robots and living organisms is beginning to blur. Researchers at the University of Vermont and Tufts University have now essentially created new creatures from frog cells, complete with programmable behaviors.Robots are made to mimic living creatures, and as smart as they’re becoming, we can still look at them and understand that they aren’t “living” in any real sense. But that line is now beginning to blur. Researchers at the University of Vermont and Tufts University have essentially created new creatures from frog cells, complete with programmable behaviors.

Read ‘Living robot’ developed by scientists using frog embryos latest on ITV News. All the Science newsScientists claim to have created the world’s first living robots using stem cells from frog embryos. The tiny hybrids are “entirely new life-forms” known as xenobots – named after the African frog used in the research – and are able to move about. It is hoped the millimetre-wide bots could one day be used to swim around human bodies to specific areas requiring medicine, or to gather microplastic in the oceans. “We here present a method that designs completely biological machines from the ground up,” the team from the University of Vermont writes in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Unlike the metal robots we have become accustomed to, biological tissues present the potential advantage of being able to heal too, though it remains very much in the early stages.
