I'm curious as to the progress of the Artificial Heart projects at
Utah, Penn and Baylor. (Who's the fourth?) Has any of these used any
Marquardt optimisation techniques to optimise the wall shape so as to
minimise dead space gunk-formation that causes strokes. Also has anyone used
the Japanese nanorobot techniques (which behave like a bimetalic thermostat
in using two small filaments that bend accoding to current applied) to
emulate muscle? Didn't someone actually invent a synthetic muscle fiber which
contracts according to current?
