    Scientists want Terminator-style robots to harvest flesh

    Pierre-Alexis Mouthuy and Professor Andrew Carr believe we should use a "humanoid-bioreactor system" with "structures, dimensions, and mechanics similar to those of the human body".

    As tissue grows on the robot it would receive the same stresses as it would face on a real human, creating stronger and healthier tissue for harvesting.

    Mr Mouthuy and Prof Carr say this could be the first step towards "biohybrid humanoids" - or Terminator-style robots where a metal endoskeleton is covered in human tissue.

    What could go wrong?

    Robots Covered in Human Flesh May Be Coming Soon
    As fans of the movie series know, the Terminator or T-800 is human-like cybernetic organism consisting of living tissue on a robotic endoskeleton. It’s not real … yet. Two biomedical researchers have proposed that the future of creating viable replacement skin and muscles for humans involves growing them on humanoid robots that train the tissue to work properly before being grafted to a person.
    ​The underlying robots are ready. The skin is ready. How long will it be before a real Terminator is ready?

    I have a feeling that the future is closer than you think.
