Fascinating technology. I'm still hoping for some progress on machines for non-invasive blood sugar monitoring, and perhaps one that can remove the excess sugar from the blood.

Very interesting development, Doug.  I recall you recently writing about another technology initiative in this area for an artificial lung. Seems to be a lot of great work underway and that's heartening to see.

Fascinating video and story. In addition to the obviously important medical applications, it''d be interesting to see if these micromechanical structures, which support the interchange between two fluids, or a fluid and gas, have other applications in processes, such as the manufacture of pharmaceuticals or other chemicals.
