NASA is Developing Star Trek-like Healing Devices [VIDEO]

The future of medical science is about to arrive. NASA and Houston based company GRoK Technologies will work on the development of new "breakthrough products", that encompass medical technologies designed to "regenerate bone and muscle tissues". If that sounds familiar, that's because we've seen it in Star Trek before.
According to GRoK's founder and CEO Moshe Kushman:
It's not just science fiction anymore. All indications are that 21st century life sciences will change dramatically during the next several decades, and GRoK is working to define the forefront of a new scientific wave.
NASA is "interested in the potential these technologies present for regenerating bone and muscle." Tissue regeneration technology will be able to help astronauts in long interplanetary travel to help them avoid developing osteopenia - a condition arising from the loss of bone and muscle mass and bone density.
One of GRoK's products is called BioReplicates, and it is a technology that will create "3-D human tissue models that can be used to test cosmetics, drugs and other products for safety, efficacy and toxicity". NASA claims that this will serve as a substitute to test substances on human tissue, and will have greater accuracy, reliability and cost-efficiency.
Another product is called Scionic, which GRoK says could result in the "development of medical devices designed to target musculoskeletal pain and inflammation in humans and animals noninvasively.
These products don't exist just yet, but they will be soon. Imagine what it can do not only for space folk, but for earth folk too!
The term machine learning is nothing but a subset of Artificial Intelligence which endeavours to provide the requisites for the systems to automatically learn and improve themselves out of the experience, not relying on any human intervention i.e., not needing to be programmed. Read more
Nowadays, internet technology makes it easier for people to book tickets, hotels, airfare, car rental, and other kinds of accommodation. However, the prices offered tend to get higher each time. If you want to save money, traveling on a budget with VPN can be the best solution. Read more
NAS, better known as network attached storage is considered as a godsend for those who are looking to protect data storage. It could be for your place or for the office. But picking the ideal kind of network storage is not an easy thing to do, especially if you happen to be an IT professional. When you search for a NAS driven online, the market will be full of Synology and QNAP. The question here arises as to which out of the two is better. Therefore, we are going to help you pick between these two! Keep reading to find out more! Read more
