hair growth control

    A selection of several articles on New Technologies published in July & August (74aH*)





  • Cells inside a hair follicle control hair growth

    Cells called dermal papilla inside a hair follicle control hair growth. A protocol combining Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC)-derived epithelial and dermal papilla cells will enable the generation of entirely human hair follicles, ready for allogenic transplantation in humans.



    Microsoft’s HoloLens device

    Two existing technologies, mixed reality and neural text-to-speech, were combined in a demo to allow anyone wearing a Microsoft’s HoloLens device to feel like a person was standing in front of them, delivering a speech in any language with the voice of the person.



    Cultivated meats could arrive in restaurants within 2 years

    A single donor cow could produce 175 million burgers while raising and killing 440,000 animals for the same result today. Meat in vitro would significantly reduce greenhouse gases, the demand for water, energy, agricultural land and even pathogenic risks. Cultivated meats could arrive in restaurants within two years. And a French start-up launches into foie gras.



    A new blood test could help predict risks of death

    A new blood test containing 14 biomarkers, among 226 metabolic biomarkers, could help predict risks of death within five to ten years. The research involved only participants with European background.



    A 3D printer regrowth mice’s own skin into a wound

    A 3D bioprinter can print dual layers of mice’s own skin directly into a wound. Two types of skin cells, fibroblasts and keratinocytes, are grown from a biopsy sample and mixed into a hydrogel which forms the bioprinter ink. The next steps involve conducting clinical trials in humans.



    Create an artificial memory in the brain of an animal

    By reverse engineering a natural memory of a rodent by mapping the brain circuits of its formation, we can create an artificial memory in the brain of another animal according to the scheme obtained. Stimulation of the electrical activity of neuronal circuits specific triggers a new memory impossible to distinguish from a natural memory.

    (74aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
    This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
    Thus, since August 6, 2019, we are in 74 aH, (meanning 74 after Hiroshima).
    It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing “monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
