Scientists Develop a Polymer With Wolverine Regeneration Abilities [VIDEO]

Scientists are working on materials that have Wolverine abilities. This could be ground breaking.
A team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh has developed a formula for a substance using nanorods to rebuild itself when parts of it have been severed. Like LG's G-Flex phone?
The nanorods are embedded in a polymer gel and when a chunk of it gets chopped off, the nanorods move into place and start a reaction to rebuild what's missing. It is similar to how lizards regrow their tails.
"This is one of the holy grails of materials science," noted Dr. Anna Balazs, the principal investigator on the project. "While others have developed materials that can mend small defects, there is no published research regarding systems that can regenerate bulk sections of a severed material."
Before you consider looking for a monocular, consider gaining knowledge about it. A monocular would be a low-powered, small telescope you could hold in your hand similar to binoculars. However, you would be using one eye to see through a monocular and view the objects at a distance while hunting, watching a sporting event, or camping. Read more

One of the most interesting uses of photo editing tools is cutting out images or subjects to make photo-composites or change the image background. A cutout image can be used for a variety of purposes, from removing an unattractive background from an otherwise wonderful shot to cutting out a picture of your head and placing it on Spiderman to create a fun profile photo.
