The procedure involves a wearable bioreactor called the BioDome which is placed directly on the amputation site to allow the wound a level of protection from the environment. Inside the bioreactor is a drug cocktail which sends signals to the body stimulating regeneration.
“It’s attached to the animal and stays there for 24 hours. We fill it with a silk-based gel with a drug cocktail mixed in. After 24 hours we take it off and we watch the animals do their thing,” Levin told SYFY WIRE.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
