Truly Cyborg Fingers Combine Robotics With Living Cells

A single biohybrid robotic finger at work. Notice the contracting and expanding muscles at the top of the device. GIF: University of Tokyo By growing muscles on an artificial skeleton, researchers from Japan have constructed an agile and surprisingly durable “biohybrid” robotic finger joint. The breakthrough could eventually lead to…
