    All those who contributed to this disgusting "technology" are disgusting excuses for humans

    cool, but, what do they taste like in a little Sweet Baby Rays

    Shazam didn't pull through, anyone know what the song is?

    Somewhat creepy, but very interesting. I want to see how this technique evolves.

    Can they make me a girlfriend from those?

    Scientists from UVM and Tufts repurposed living cells scraped from frog embryos and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. More: http://go.uvm.edu/firstrbts Meet the xenobot: world's first living, self-healing robots created from frog stem cells

    as cool and as amazingly useful it will be for noble purposes, it's not hard to imagine someone programs ransomware-type nastiness into those biorobots
    and unleashes onto us humans as hosts – "transfer 0.1 bitconis into account X and you will receive personalized antidote cells formula into your bio-3d-printer, otherwise your right kidney will be fully metabolized in 3 days, thank you."

    Then they gather together like molten metal to create a Terminator. We're doomed.

    "survive for weeks without food" And when it mutates to seek out its own food while inside a human body then what? Oh right, it uses the human body for food, while replicating itself, and self repairing.
    "The organisms come pre-loaded with their own food source of lipid and protein deposits, allowing them to live for a little over a week — but they can't reproduce or evolve."
    Why can't they evolve? Simple proteins eventually evolved into single cell organisms, and these are more complex.

    Nanomachimes, its mgs

    Wow to think this literally could be our most simplified form legit we could possibly be programmable living organisms we jus dont know how to control our remote could be more biological an have to do less with numbers an more with vibrations or certain energy waves

    Exciting.

    Mother nature make everything by her techniques which we called science.
    She made any livingthings by her own way DNA technology.
    All livingthings are made by organic robot techniques. We must learn how is work
    of DNA machines into nano scale level.
    We will create all species by our hands at future. Go deeply probe into the DNA machine.

    I'm so tired of humans.

    Can we use that to accelerate evolution?
    Or even extend life by manipulating some things inside our body?

    oh, so the end of the world won't come because of AI, but from biological self assembling robots, neat!
