"After training with virtual reality, the patients were eventually able to walk with the help of brain-controlled robotic exoskeletons in just a short 12 months. That’s a feat in-and-of-itself, but the real surprise was this: somehow, the training had reawakened the patient’s slumbering nervous system, spurring the brain to regain control of their paralyzed body parts.”

“Farren Isaacs, a synthetic biologist at Yale University, notes that this is “a dramatic departure from what exists in nature…an important step forward for demonstrating the malleability of the genetic code and how entirely new types of biological functions and properties can be extracted from organisms through genomes that have been recoded.””
Researchers at Harvard Medical School have "radically rewritten" the genome of bacteria E. coli. The team has replaced 7 of its 64 codons (3-letter sequences which correspond usually... read more

"Technological civilizations — and the Fermi paradox assumes there would be many by now — don’t colonize outer space (and thus flood the cosmos with signatures we could easily find). Instead, they move toward inner space by building vast digital realities on computers much smaller than we can detect."
Evidence suggesting that our universe is tailor-made for habitable planets — ones that could reasonably support life — continues to pile up. And as humanity... read more

"His team is working with top neuroscientists to build a tiny brain chip—also known as a neuroprosthetic—to help people with disease-related brain damage. In the long term, though, Johnson sees the product applicable to anyone who wants a bit of a brain boost." http://bit.ly/2bonYPX
How will we interact with the intelligent machines of the future? If you’re asking Bryan Johnson, founder of startup Kernel, he’ll tell you those machines should be implanted inside our brains. His team is working with top neuroscientists to build a tiny brain chip—also known as a neuroprosthetic—to help people with disease-related brain damage. In the long term, …

It will make computing more convenient and natural to use. Apart from that, it's still "just a user interface".

This is the first project to introduce so many functional changes to a genome. http://bit.ly/2boBhQD
Researchers at Harvard Medical School have ‘radically rewritten’ the genome of bacteria e.coli. The team has replaced 7 of its 64 codons (3-letter sequences which correspond usually to a single animo acid.) The lab, led by George Church, had already proven it is possible to recode single amino acids, but this project is the first to introduce so many functional …

Citing the fact that computation today is moving toward smaller and more powerful systems, the theory suggests we haven’t found advanced aliens because they’ve already vanished from this reality into computational ones they’ve built themselves.
