The future is now... the promise of catgirls

For those not following the wonders of the tech world. I am very excited and am overjoyed in sharing this information with you. You see the wonders of science has made some amazing break through. And no not talking of the H5n1 virus which they say can kill off half the population of the planet. Or even the fact the GMOs have been directly linked to the decline of the Honey bee and bubble bee population.

Oh no this is much more important to the anime fans out there. I am talking of the wonders of the 3D printer. Which today been getting alot of bad press do tothe fact you can all but print out your very own fire arm from a ar-15 lower to almost a full 1911 pistol or even working machine parts in a rocket. No, no, no. the print can do so much.. brace yourself for the following.

 a company has taken protein enzymes and was able to print out food, well they hope to find tune it to print out edible healthy food. But what they have done right now is science they printed out a working ear, and a life like finger. Not to mention a robotic bat wing. They created muscle to help make a heart work,I read some where where they believe they will soon be about to take cloning to the very next step.

Now where do catgirls come in?  relax and follow along. Albert Einstein said the most dangerous thing a man has is his imagination, for if we can think it, some one will do it. And we are.  They have tattoos that allows   electronic telepathy,’ ‘telekinesis’. Think of it.

You are alone , have nothing else to waste money one. how long before we figure out how to cross genes in a computer program. which in theory should not be to hard.  hell they are trying to clone a wolly mammoth. Like NO ONE seen Jurassic park. And staying with movies, they are on the verge of  a thinking self learning brain harddrive, add that with todays military robots or tie that in with the MIT study on flesh and skin tissue grafting to metal and hell you have the Sarah Conner series.. terminator anyone? 

Oh, now they say it will help those who lost a leg, hand, arm.. what ever. and the thinking self learning hard drive is to help us learn of the human brain.  hell i can clue ya in on that one. the human brain is a very scary place and not made to be cloned. 

How long before you get Android brothels. Seriously, look at japan. that already have a very very life looking female robot. with all this new tech stuff, you can add some real warm flesh, learning hard drive to be taught on what every you want. Like wash dishes of stuff (wink, Wink) Since it will be nothing more then hardware covered with a artificial printer flesh. Why not add cat eats, or a tail. everything is all laid on the table now. It will just take some funding and a very clever person to put it together. 




if you think I am making it up and what not. look at some techie stuff going on right now....... Of course all this stuff used for fun, would be really scary if it was made into the sole mission of killing man. i really don't think anyone will be placing the golden rule of three in any of them.....

3D-printed cyborg muscle produces artificial heartbeathttp://www.newscientist.com/blogs/nstv/2013/02/3d-printed-artificial-heartbeat.html>Created by Peter Walters from the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK, and colleagues, the pump uses the gas released by live yeast to generate pressure and distend a membrane, turning it into an artificial muscle. A valve - activated by electricity produced by a microbial fuel cell - controls the movement of the membrane. It opens to release pressure when the muscle is fully expanded, allowing it to shrink back to its resting state again to begin another cycle.

Temporary tattoos could make ‘electronic telepathy,’ ‘telekinesis’ possiblehttp://txchnologist.com/post/43496630304/temporary-tattoos-could-make-electronic-telepathy>The devices are less than 100 microns thick, the average diameter of a human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer or rubbery polyester that allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle. They are barely visible when placed on skin, making them easy to conceal from others.>The devices can detect electrical signals linked with brain waves, and incorporate solar cells for power and antennas that allow them to communicate wirelessly or receive energy. Other elements can be added as well, like thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.>Using the electronic tattoos, Coleman and his colleagues have found they can detect brain signals reflective of mental states, such as recognition of familiar images. One application they are now pursuing is monitoring premature babies to detect the onset of seizures that can lead to epilepsy or brain development problems. The devices are now being commercialized for use as consumer, digital health, medical device, and industrial and defense products by startup MC10 in Cambridge, Mass.

MIT researchers build ultrahigh-definition Quad HD (4K) TV chiphttp://www.mit.edu/newsoffice/2013/mit-researchers-build-quad-hd-tv-chip-0220.html>Quad HD is also known as 4K and ultrahigh-definition (UHD). The new Quad HD video standard enables a fourfold increase in the resolution of TV screens.>Although the MIT chip isn’t intended for commercial release, its developers believe that the challenge of implementing HEVC algorithms in silicon helps illustrate design principles that could be broadly useful.>One design modification they plan to investigate, Tikekar says, is the use of several smaller decoding pipelines that work in parallel. Reducing the computational demands on each group of circuits would also reduce the chip’s operating voltage.

Stanford scientists fit light-emitting bioprobe in a living cellhttp://news.stanford.edu/pr/2013/pr-light-emitting-bioprobe-021913.html>Stanford engineers have developed a new class of biophotonic (light-emitting) probes small enough to be injected into individual cells for intracellular sensing and control, without harm to the host.>The researchers call their device a “nanobeam,” because it resembles a steel I-beam with a series of round holes etched through the center. This beam, however, is not massive, but measures only a few microns in length and just a few hundred nanometers in width and thickness.>“Our nanoscale probes can reside in cells for long periods of time, potentially providing sensor feedback or giving control signals to the cells down the road,” said Shambat. “We tracked one cell for eight days. That’s a long time for a single-cell study.”

Researchers create semiconductor 'nano-shish-kebabs' with potential for 3-D technologieshttp://phys.org/news/2013-02-semiconductor-nano-shish-kebabs-potential-d-technologies.html>Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a new type of nanoscale structure that resembles a "nano-shish-kebab," consisting of multiple two-dimensional nanosheets that appear to be impaled upon a one-dimensional nanowire. But looks can be deceiving, as the nanowire and nanosheets are actually a single, three-dimensional structure consisting of a single, seamless series of germanium sulfide (GeS) crystals. The structure holds promise for use in the creation of new, three-dimensional (3-D) technologies.>"We think this approach could also be used to create heterostructures like these using other materials whose molecules form similar crystalline layers, such as molybdenum sulfide (MoS2)," says Dr. Linyou Cao, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NC State and co-author of a paper on the research. "And, while germanium sulfide has excellent photonic properties, MoS2 holds more promise for electronic applications."
