The Real Invisible Man

Did You Know? The invisible man might just be real. Scientists at the University of California recently published a paper describing their work in genetically engineering human cells to have the ability to vary their transparency.

Cephalopods can change both the color and transparency of their skin. The researchers grew embryonic human kidney cells in a dish using a special technique to create a specific squid protein. When stimulated with salt, the proteins in the cells reacted and changed the cells' transparency. Further research will improve strategies for creating the protein and for controlling the cells' optical properties in real-time. Read More… #trianglecompudocs #didyouknow #invisibleman #tldr
