From Frankenstein to Frog Steaks

Abstract:
The image of a Jesus lizard, scampering across the surface of a pond on its hind legs, filled the screen in the auditorium. "Wouldn't it be great to be able to design something like this?" asked Carlo Montemagno, co-director of the UCLA Institute for Cell Mimetic Space Exploration. Like many nanotech researchers, Montemagno is fascinated by the possibilities of mimicking life to create hybrid devices that combine living tissue with inanimate components.
