View Full Version : Biological machines/computers

Is there any possibility of machines with biological components or using organic tissue with computers?
Or is it all just science fiction?

I see no reason why we would want to have that... Can you?

It's not science fiction. We actually have running biological computers.

There's a link to an article about them.

Wow, I hadn't heard of that. It doesn't give much detail on how the system can be programmed, I assume it'd be very difficult to make any sophisticated software.

WOW!! BLOODY INTERESTING!! Is this not a hoax??

It sounds plausible to me........ I suppose this is linked with nano technology.

Why would we need androids, DBA? Why would we package a computer in the shape of a human being? For soldiers? Who needs soldiers when you can send rockets??

No hoax, dude. I was reading about this 2 years ago. It's quite fascinating.
Mike, I believe there are some articles out there you can read that will describe the programming aspect with greater detail. Just do a google search on "DNA computing".

Nice link explaining (in very short words) how these things will work.
