Gunshow is a comic about a lot of different things. Like bones and blood and sadness and love. And also nerds and hell and dogs and death. And also growing up and breaking down and getting over something and ghosts. And also family and kids and moms and dads. And then maybe a comic or two about a mummy with a huge erection.
“Straight out of Stanford University is a new material that is not only touch sensitive, but also self-healing. Being a bit of a human augmentation geek, my mind immediately went to smarter prosthetic limbs that can relay sensation back to their users.
Using nickel micro-particles embedded in a special polymer, the skin is able to detect touch and pressure via changes in the conductivity of the material. Such signals could be relayed to the brain to be interpreted as actual sensation. Pretty cool.”
These four biological molecules are essential to all life on Earth.
They originated more than 3 Billion years ago during the Proterozoic Era, in a common ancestor of Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukaryota. Together these molecules form the fundamental pattern of the fractal of life; they are specialized machines that replicate each other and produce an endless variety of new forms. They have evolved over trillions of generations into extraordinarily complex arrangements that consume energy, organize, and reproduce.
