Scientist develop a laser activated muscle, leads to a future with bio-robots

Scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), have grown their own muscle tissue. This major milestone didn’t stop their curiosity, so they decided to stimulate those muscle tissues with light. The result caused individual muscle tissues to contract. With a 20 millisecond laser, getting the job done, this opens a whole new world of possibilities, including bio-robots. Hopefully a couple of decades from now, I’ll have my own bio-robot to get my laundry done.

Giant Hydrogen Drone gets a Laser Cannon straight from Pentagon

The “Phantom Eye” project is in its last steps. After completing its designing Boeing has been able to produce a prototype. This unmanned giant drone is able to fly to up to 60,000 feet and stay in the air for over four days. It’s also environmentally friendly as it runs on hydrogen. Better yet, the Ministry of Defense has provided Boeing with a multi-million dollar project in providing this aerial vehicle with  a laser cannon. In the near future, America will have its own missile defense system in the sky exhausting only water.
