Researchers have fabricated an artificial ear from titanium wire, bovine collagen, and cells from sheep, according to a paper published yesterday (July 31) in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. Ear reconstructions today are done using cartilage harvested from patients’ rib cages or polymer implants. But these materials have not always achieved the flexibility of real ears, nor have they consistently held their shape.

nspired by the way lizards are able to stick to almost any surface, University of Massachusetts Amherst researchers have invented a new material called Geckskin that could beat common adhesives like Blu-Tack and sticky tape. The research, headed by Prof Alfred Crosby of the Polymer Science and Engineering Department, is published in an article entitled "Creating Gecko-Like Adhesives for 'Real World' Surfaces" in the Advanced Materials journal.
