  • Pin it

This isn’t your regular fashion/style article, you’re right, it’s just another one of those Easy Like Sunday Moments!

Only this time, it’s one that should make us stop and think for a moment. Think about where we’re headed with this kind of technology in our hands!

At the University of Tokyo, researchers from the Institute of Industrial Science have created a doll composed of living cells! The doll is only 5 millimeters tall, but the achievement is nonetheless gigantic!

The formation was molded in a doll shape and it’s made of 100,000 cell capsules (balls of collagen coated with skin cells). It can be mold in any other shape and it’s a possible breakthrough in creating regenerative medicine.
