Skynet would be rushing back to protect this piece of art if they knew about this. Researchers over at Harvard University have successfully created what is called "fully functioning, respirating human long", embedded on a microchip. Its made with combination of typical human blood vessel cells, and a microchip, the artificial lung is far simpler if compared to real living lungs of a human. The size is also rather remarkable, at only the size of an eraser.
What's remarkable about this is that it is fully functional and efficient, in replicating gas exchange between lung cells and the bloodstream of a human. The research team is now hoping to produce other parts of human organs on microchip, as they already have an operational heart on a chip. Seemed like a very big breakthrough in medical science world, but also attracts attention of the Skynet Corporation.
