Honest question: Does this excite you or terrify you?
Don't forget to HIT THAT BELL, to get our videos in the future 🙂

Nestor Gonzalez says:

Alien vs predator

Charlie Wilkins says:

I feel the same way as you… It's exciting and scarry…. Because scientists are creating a new type of life form. And in the furure the life forms will be more advanced….. And i'm sure will will eventually have some sort of intelligence. And on what level who knows. We will have to wait and see.

River Steady says:

Don’t tell Putin

futile cat says:

Bicentenial womman

Preacher Teacher says:

Could be beneficial to us as a species and in regards to the longevity of our kind but this is not the way.

Void says:

How are they programmed though

Nicholas Ridge says:

Human beings are already robots, or at least a portion. To support this, for now, we will hone in on a particular collective belief system. Christianity. Strip it down to the fundamentals; please excuse my vagueness I haven’t been to church in a while. God creates man in his image. What’s a copied image, a reflection, what reflects, water, we can stretch this over to primordial ooze, slime.

Pac The Espacio says:

Wow, we got so far, we create NEW LIFE?? haha, soon we'll be able to make new planets!!

andrew 91 says:

This is considered to be a life by science…do I need to say more?

TorQueMoD says:

Oh God, like we need another thing for the extreme Christians to protest about. Sounds like a cool idea and tech, but not looking forward to how people (read idiots) react to this.

Rich Uncle Joey says:

One more man-made creation that has the potential to end humanity..weee

BreatheCenterAccept says:

Aaaand here we are again with animal testing – nnnope!

Typical Anomaly says:

Somebody will use this technology to enlarge penises

Alex Kairis says:

Xenobots that mindlessly destroy plastic. I don't see that going terribly wrong at all!

Peter Jerz says:

Hm, interesting, but hype. 🙁

Jay Dee says:

In the right hands, fantastic. Unfortunately, there are way too many wrong hands that would love this. No thanks.

Redstone Noob says:

“I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Obi Van Keno says:

Evolutionary Alghorithms?Made by humans…

Obi Van Keno says:

ALIVE without Central brain or specialized Nerve like Bugs?

sam ross says:

lol this thing is considered to be alive but not a human embryo.

Wdfididthisalready Effoffwiththisbuchit says:

and i thought Metroid was going to be a lot farther in the future

Susan V says:

Can they mutate?

labibbidabibbadum says:

Can you make one that eats Republicans?

dog says:

why would you do this

patricia valencia says:

So out cells are intelligent beings and we can work with them being mindful. What these studies show is our understanding of our body-universe is a collection of life. Funny we start discussing rights of these cells we “ build” outside our body…. What about the cells we create everyday? Anyways, interesting. I believe we can never see something, anything, through a one sided perspective since, you know, we are body, spirit and etc.

Mar Life says:

O so the living robot that at first didnt exist already existed as frogcells. Ahah makes sense. Truly some people have a ego the size of a planet they truly think they are creathores while they are the created

Janny Fanny says:

We eat sentient beings. Even plants have feelings. Ethics are man made ideas. Humans kill each other all the time for every reason under the sun. We have bigger ethical issues than this.
