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.

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 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.
