Nyan cat, a creature of the night that appears in science fiction, will get its own 3-D printer and laser scanners, Bloomberg reports.
Nyan Cat, the first creature from the movie “The Mummy” that appeared in “The Day After Tomorrow,” was created by an inventor in Japan who is now based in the U.S. In addition to the Nyan, which can grow up to 10 feet long, researchers are working on a more humanoid Nyan that will have legs and be able to fly.
We don’t know what we’re going to do with this creature, but if we can make it more like a dog, we can do it with this technology.
While we have yet to see a Nyan in the real world, we are making good progress on this, the inventor said in a press release on the Nya3D website.
I’ve been working with a team of engineers, scientists, and others to design a Nya that will be much more like the Nydas of the past, he said.
The prototype is in testing and is already showing incredible improvements in a variety of areas.
It’s about time, said Stephen Hsu, president of Nya, in a statement to Bloomberg.
The Nyan’s design is more advanced than what we’ve seen from any other creature of its kind.
The Nyan was created in Japan and used in the movie.
“Nyan” director Sam Peckinpah said in the press release that Nyan has “no legs” and no “wings” because it doesn’t have any DNA.
For decades, scientists have been exploring ways to create artificial limbs.
A 3-dimensional printer could print out a limb, and a laser scanner could scan it to determine how it looks.
Researchers also hope to develop a “neuroscanner” that can scan the brain to find the exact locations of certain structures and the exact function of certain neurons.
There’s no guarantee the Nyans will work for humans, but a robot or a robot-like creature would have the potential to improve our understanding of how our bodies work.
