Twitter Ran Ads for Human Organs Because Money Is Money

Aside from pockets of overt racism, one of the more weirdly unpleasant corners of Twitter comes from its “promoted” content. What ostensibly started as a tool for big-name brands to drive the of whatever message they might be promoting, it’s since devolved into another kind of marketing tool…

3D-Printed Organ Capable of “Breathing”

Bioengineers at Rice University and the University of Washington crafted a first-ever 3D-printed “breathing” organ. Developing an organ that can maintain (aka breathe and transmit oxygen) has proven to be the most difficult part of the research: growing living cells is simple, researchers argue, but keeping them alive is much more difficult. This lung is 3D-printed from soft gels which allow it to expand and …

First drone delivery of organ for human transplant

My late brother Mark was a transplant surgeon. He told me how sometimes he'd be woken up in the middle of the night to fly to a nearby city to retrieve, say, a kidney, from someone who had just died (frequently in a motorcycle crash), then carry the organ on a plane to another city where he'd install the kidney into a waiting patient, and then fly back home. (He felt it important to personally retrieve the organ that he'd then be transplanting.) I thought of that process while reading about the...

Meet the Subharchord, subharmonic organ of the DDR

Once upon a time in East Germany, an alternate branch of the evolution of the synthesizer and the organ came into being. And now it has a second chance to capture imaginations. The Subharchord was the DDR-era invention of engineer Enrst Schreiber, first designed in 1958. It was an original production but inspired by Oskar Sala’s so-called Mixtur-Trautonium. State backing came from the unlikely goal of serving as a commercial rival to the Hammond organ, thus bringing revenue to the cash-strapped ...
