Pacemakers are — even at their tiniest — intrusive bits of metal wired into the heart. But now scientists have come up with something completely different: a “biological pacemaker” in a pig made by reprogramming the heart’s own cells with a modified virus carrying a specific gene.
Wilson Greatbatch has died at the age of 92. He was a lifelong inventor. And like many inventors, his most notable creation, the implantable cardiac pacemaker, was discovered accidentally.
The Tonium Pacemaker, contrary to its name, will not maintain your heart’s natural beat from the inside. It’s a portable DJ system, packing a 60/120GB HDD, that simplifies the DJing process in a pocket-sized package.
