ICYMI: Tricksy Smartphones, Fake Kidney Implants and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: Brand new Mobile World Congress smartphones can both take heat map selfies and charge your phone with a power pack using salt and water (aka break-up tears). Vanderbilt University researchers developed an artificial kidney that uses the patient's own kidney cells to filter blood and avoid rejection. And it turns out cancer cells get healthy cells to to join their tumor party by engaging in some old-fashioned arm-twisting. Researchers recorded cancer cells extending fibers to reel other cells in and it is not a pretty sight.

We also enjoyed this video of a robot trying to achieve the perfect ironing job with automation. If the future contains more Rosie and less Terminator, it can't be all bad.
