Cool stuff is undoubtedly our most intriguing and interesting projects at RSI. It allows us to embark upon the pursuit of truly novel ideas. A chance to think “outside the box”, and to formulate our thought creations into proof-of-principle experiments. It is off these high risk, paradigm-shifting initial concepts that some of our greatest projects are born. Promising projects integrate into RSI’s main projects. Although many cool stuff never reach the lab bench, we keep the cool stuff on our project list, for the time when technology has matured.
A peak at our thought creations
Turritopsis dohrnii, discovered in 1883, is the only animal capable of reverting itself by transdifferentiation from a mature adult to a younger rejuvenated form. Turritopsis dohrniiÂ is biologically immortal and its limitless ability to continually bypass death by rejuvenation brings promise that a feat in humans is scientifically possible.
