Vyralize: Using simple substances like water droplets and thin plastic sheeting, European scientists have created a cell which carries out basic chemical reactions.
That sounds a TOUCH less complex than an actual cell. Impressive, definitely, but not exactly what I expected from the headline. When I think cells, I think replication, not just basic chemical reactions happening in tiny sacks.
I guess neurons aren't cells then, since they can't replicate. Maybe the top layer of our skin isn't made of cells at all, but something else. Our immune system is made up of white blood sacks and not white blood cells. The heart probably pumps red blood bags, not red blood cells.
oh you know exactly what he meant Captain Obvious
Silent - not all cells are self-replicating.
This is good enough for me. I couldn't do this even if I said hold my beer and watch this.
These are technically not cells at all. It's just basic chemical reactions and functions performing as nature made them. A cell is much more than this but if you ask me, this could be the first step towards creation of artificial life.
And the next step to killing off humans forever.
I think that cell can mutate into a zombie virus.. s/
