Anyone who has taken even a passing glance at science fiction should now what a cyborg is by now. It's been a very popular idea for some time, but for the most part it's been confined to space of fiction. Well, clearly no told the mad scientists over at Harvard about that little tidbit. NewScientist The team of researchers was not able to create their own Jean Claude Van Damme (not yet, anyway). However, by mixing circuity into these organic cells, the scientists were able to discover some tantalizing information about how they function. In the future, they hope to use this technology for testing drugs on human tissue or to monitor for health issues. For those interested in the actual science behind the research (without reading the article), allow me to direct you to this link. Of course, that's just what they're telling us. Hey Harvard, if you're looking for volunteers to become part of an army of augmented supermen, just ignore my transcript; I'm totally a Poly-Sci-Borg major.
