Guys this is next level. Reminds me of those futuristic movies where someone gets a big cut and the medic just sprays them with something and bam..they're healed in a matter of hours or mins.

...This is difficult to imagine, but it is achievable, successfully working about 98 percent of the time. With this technology, we can convert skin cells into elements of any organ with just one touch. This process only takes less than a second and is non-invasive, and then you're off. The chip does not stay with you, and the reprogramming of the cell starts. Our technology keeps the cells in the body under immune surveillance, so immune suppression is not necessary," said Sen, who also is executive director of Ohio State's Comprehensive Wound Center.

TNT technology has two major components: First is a nanotechnology-based chip designed to deliver cargo to adult cells in the live body. Second is the design of specific biological cargo for cell conversion. This cargo, when delivered using the chip, converts an adult cell from one type to another, said first author Daniel Gallego-Perez, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering and general surgery who also was a postdoctoral researcher in both Sen's and Lee's laboratories.

TNT doesn't require any laboratory-based procedures and may be implemented at the point of care. The procedure is also non-invasive. The cargo is delivered by zapping the device with a small electrical charge that's barely felt by the patient.

"The concept is very simple," Lee said. "As a matter of fact, we were even surprised how it worked so well. In my lab, we have ongoing research trying to understand the mechanism and do even better. So, this is the beginning, more to come."......

Future is here... Can't help thinking what would happened if the nano-robot malfunction while in the body and turn every cell into liver cell/skin cells slowly (can't retrieve malfunctioned nano-robot, too small to fish out)

Doubt any real breakthroughs get FDA approval here in the States as Big Pharm and Diabetes, Cancer and Heart related biotechs are in bed with the government to continue making billions. They ain't about to give all that gross revenue up without a fight.

They'll buy these biotech start ups. Monopoly is allowed

yep.
Buy it, find out how to tone it down a bit so it wont completely heal you or it will take much longer and their excuse will be "well now its affordable."

I use to work for a company that was in bed with the govnt. they use to send us memos called something like "on the hill." meaning capital hill. Now that doesnt sound too bad. Until you read the memo and notice they are low key trying to convince their workers to speak to their elected officials and voter a certain way to help the company out. knowing full well most people dont pay extreme attention to detail. most people would just assume "well if i help my company, i will help myself keep a job and get paid more one day..right? right? WRONG. there is no guarantee when you're just a worker bee and that goes for engineers and scientists as well. I've seen it with my own eyes.

Nice idea, but doesn't beat the time somebody said they could avoid open heart surgery with acupuncture.
