Steve Colbern is a specialist in nanotechnology and an expert on implants, and here he tells Whitley Strieber the story of his findings, including the story of an implant that Dr. Roger Leir’s surgical team removed from his own body!

He and Whitley have a searching discussion about hybrids and also speak frankly about why it would be that they both have such a calm attitude toward the visitors, given the extreme nature of some of the things that have happened to them.

The suit, known as the "Mindwalker" , is part of a research study entitled the Walk Again Project, an international collaboration involving several universities worldwide which is focusing on the use of cutting edge technology to liberate those with severe paralysis.

In the wake of yet more bloodshed in our educational establishments during the past few weeks, a chilling map has been created that illustrates the full extent of the school shooting phenomena in the United States.
The map shows a grim reality: that since the Sandy Hook Massacre in December 2012, a startling total of 74 other shootings associated with schools and colleges have taken place across the U.S..

As the latest biomedical devices are unveiled, it appears that medical research recently taken a step into the realms of science fiction.

A team of researchers have developed biodegradable, implantable batteries that can deliver internal treatments or monitor bodily tissues, but which are then gradually re-absorbed after use.

“This is a really major advance,” says Jeffrey Borenstein, a biomedical engineer at Draper Laboratory, a non-profit research and development centre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “Until recently, there has not been a lot of progress in this area.”
