Lab-Grown Rat Muscle Could Be The Next Step in Robotics

quote [ Engineers at the University of Tokyo developed a method for growing muscle cells from rats on flexible hydrogel sheets and then pairing them to move in opposing fashions on a synthetic skeletal frame. ]

The applications for prosthetics (or enhancements) are staggering.

But the nature of it being organic material means it'll degrade sooner than synthetics. Sounds like a planned obsolescence scheme in the works.
