Medical advances on fast forward

Bionic vision, organ regeneration, materials that can mimic muscle and diagnostic technologies with unprecedented capabilities are just some of the advances made possible by biomedical engineering. At their most ambitious, efforts to compensate for damaged or destroyed sensory organs have come to involve the invention, manufacture and implantation of bionic counterparts for eyes and ears. These connect the conscious mind and the vibrant, colourful, noisy external world – with life-changing consequences for recipients. Once the stuff of science fiction, the bionic enterprise of today is built on a realisation that has transformed human innovation during the past decade: that no single discipline in science, engineering or medicine is up to the task
