Flesh of My Flesh

Of all the things I guessed I’d be writing about today here at Yanko Design, human-made human flesh wasn’t one of them. This is wild, this is wonderful! You know me as a proponent of progress, even unto the weirdest of futures, and this is one of them! Grown from a tissue culture taken from the patient, the architecture of this “Epidermic Hyperplasia” mimics the natural processes of the “human envelope.” Excellent way to say SKIN, I must say.

Epidermic Hyperplasia is a “semi-living” structure made of human skin cells and a polyglycolic acid (PGA) scaffolding. PGA scaffolding is a bio-degradable plastic which provides the necessary nutrients required to grow the skin. As the skin grows, the PGA is consumed completely. Epidermic Hyperplasia grows in a way similar enough to skin that it acts as a semi-living machine lasting the rest of the life of the patient.

Creepy! Awesome!

    Perfect for ethical cannibals! (Just kidding. Maybe.)

  • But now, with the prevalence of social media accounts, caretakers must now tackle the hurdle that is their loved one’s
    online presence. Constantly run 2 ads on Adwords
    for every ad group. But other than those who just want to communicate with friends, old and new,
    social media is also currently being taken advantage by business
    oriented people as a way to reach their target clients and improve their businesses.
