Two New Advances Fusing Man and Machine

7 | By Michael A. Robinson

Robots are becoming more human all the time.

I predict that in the near future, robots will be so human-like that it will seem natural for us interact with them. We’ll also see the advent of people who are what I call “bionics” – those who put computer chips or other devices in their brains or bodies.

As I see it, we are fast approaching the day in which man and machine become fused together.

Just in the last few days, researchers reported major breakthroughs that promise to do just that. In a moment, I’ll tell you all about it.

First, remember the new hydrogel we investigated Tuesday – the material that could greatly improve human health and aging by replacing damaged cartilage? Turns out there’s another part of the part of the story we need to know about.

This type of hydrogel could play a vital role in the cutting-edge field of robotics, too.

See, we’re getting very close to the day in which we augment robots with “smart” human tissue. We’ll grow tissue in labs and equip it with onboard electronics made possible by nanotech circuits.

That’s where the hydrogel would come in handy. We won’t just replace damaged cartilage in people. We’ll use that or something like it to link sensor-laden tissue inside robots or in people with organ transplants or artificial limbs.

Just two weeks ago, a research team from MIT and the University of Pennsylvania said they had blurred the boundary between biology and machines even further. They genetically engineered skeletal muscles for robots that work by responding to light.

This is just amazing…

Five New Brain Secrets You Must Know

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

It’s the most complex organ on earth – the human brain.

And our understanding of how it works is about to reach critical mass.

Our knowledge of the human brain grows by leaps and bounds almost every week. In just the last two weeks, researchers have made several new breakthroughs crucial to learning more about diseases that can cause mental illness or kill us outright.

I predict that in the near future our knowledge will become so complete we will find cures for such deadly diseases as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The same holds for depression and schizophrenia.

And that’s one of the key benefits of living in the Era of Radical Change. What was a deep mystery about the brain (and other areas) just a few months ago is now much better understood.

Of course, the pace of change is nothing short of amazing. Consider that as I was preparing this report on five new brain secrets, I came across two more brand-new advances in brain science. Each one holds great promise in our drive to live, longer, healthier, and smarter lives.

Five Biotech Firms That Will Change the World

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The biotech industry is getting ready to transform the human race as we know it.

It will help us cure cancer, rid us of the scourge of Alzheimer’s, and make 100-year life spans routine. Not only that, but we will lead much healthier and more intelligent lives as a result.

I’ve followed this field for more than 20 years and have never seen so many advances coming so quickly.

Of course, a big part of that stems from the fact that we have passed the tipping point in other forms of cutting-edge tech the biosciences have adopted — faster computers, better sensors and tiny digital circuits.

And now that we have a complete map of the human genome, biotech has reached critical mass. Add it all up and you have an unending series of advances that will redefine life in the Era of Radical Change.

To help make sense of the profound impact this will have on our lives, I have compiled a list of five firms that are pushing biotech into new realms.

Each has accomplished a major breakthrough. Take a look…
