Science has made so much progress that the day is not far when man himself will be able to artificially create human beings and himself will have to produce children in a scientific way. Where scientists still consider it far-reaching. They have succeeded in reaching new heights. Scientists who have created the world’s first living robot claim that they will now be able to perform biological reproduction, that is, they will be able to give birth to their own offspring. Scientists have also said that they will not do this like plants or animals.
How to be a living robot
American scientists created a robot from the stem cells of a frog named African Xenopus lavis, which they named Xenobots. They are just under a millimeter they were on display last year. At that time they were able to run experiments, work in groups and even be able to self-medicate.
New types of biological reproduction
Now scientists at Vermont University of Tufts University and Harvard University’s Vice Institute for Biological Inspired Engineering say they have discovered a new type of biological reproduction that is different from any plant or animal reproduction known to science.
Michael Levine, co-lead author of the new study and professor of biology at Tufts University and director of the Alan Discovery Center, said he was shocked. According to a CNS report, he said that frogs have their own method of reproduction, but such shocking results were found when cells were released from the remaining embryos and given a chance to understand the new environment.

Are these really animals?
In the new environment, they found a new way of activity, on the contrary, they also found a new way of reproduction. Stem cells are normal cells that have the potential to grow into a wide variety of cells. To create xenobots, researchers removed live stem cells from frog embryos and released them for incubation. There was no tampering with the jeans. Thus, they are genetically engineered organisms from frog cells.
Scientists do not have even half the knowledge of human cell-research
These are so many robots
Josh Bongard, lead author of the study and a professor of computer science and robotics expert at the University of Vermont, says most people think robots are made of metal or ceramic. But robots are not just made of them. What they are made of depends on what they can do. In that sense, they are robots.

How do they replicate themselves?
Xenobots were initially spherical and were made up of about three thousand cells. Bongard says his team discovered that xenobots can replicate themselves. But in the past this could only happen occasionally and in special circumstances. Xenobots use kinetic replication processes that take place at the molecular level, but have never been observed at the level of whole cells or organisms.
Dosage affects reproduction, according to research on fish
In a study published this week in the journal PANS for Peer Review, researchers have tested billions of body shapes using artificial intelligence that would be perfect for replicating xenobots. AI did not program such a shape, but looked like the letter C and shaped it like the old game Pacman, so that the xenobots could reproduce in this way. Currently this technology is considered as the newest technology in our field.
