Let’s Go to the Movies: Week of May 31 & June 7, 2021: The Electrical Blueprints that Orchestrate Life

Where do we go from here? In this fascinating TED Talks video, biologist Michael Levin speaks about “living robots” or “xenobots,” and how close we are to manipulating the electrical blueprint of life – the metalayer of information providing shape and function to the cells of any organism.
Michael Levin is a biology professor at Tufts University. He created the world’s first living robots in his lab by cracking the electrical code of cells.
