This has massive potential.

Not long to wait for a 6-1200mm f1.2 lens that weighs a 100 grams is 50mm long and costs about 500 then?

That does look very impressive. Nice link Dave although it took me a while to work through their cookie system!

I think it's because I've got an ad blocker set-up in my router. It happens a lot with the sites Google tags with 'Ad'.

Try the original Harvard Gazette link : https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/sto...ficial-muscle/


It looks interesting but could take quite a while to reach a practical form.

I opened up the post, as though to quote. I then copied the url, without the url tags, pasted it in my browser and got in immediately.
