This microchip won the Best Design of the year, and it’s totally understandable why. Essentially it recreates human biochemistry, and the mechanical function of human organs all in a tiny piece of rubber.
These microchips are line with real human cells so they have real human responses. Because of this drugs can be tested on them, as well as cosmetics! No more months of petri dishes and testing on animals!

The only problem with this device (in my opinion): The name

Currently, it is being called Human Organs-on-Chips
This can definitely be improved upon. So I’ve created a list of new names we should probably call it:
Organs on a Chip
Guts to Go!
Micro-Internal Organs
Guts for Animal Rights
Chip O’ Organs
Some of these names need a little improving, but I’ll send them to that fancy scientist for approval.
"guts to go" its definitely my favorite ahahah we should open a franchise with that name and open a chain of restaurants xp probably wouldn't be very famous though..
Guts to Go, when that does well, the spin off franchine 'Intestines 'R Us'
the name they have def sounds terrifying lol. but i hope this really changes the way testing is done
Hahahaha well it would be ok if it were like Chicken Liver or something, but yeah. Human organs would be too much (don’t get any ideas Lays) @virginvingler
@nicolejb seems like a great leap forward, good to see someone is investing in this kind of technology rather than seeing animals as a cheap and disposable way of testing. Hope it works as well as the publicity suggests. Agree Human Organs on chips is a bad title - certainly hope Lay's don't pick it up as a new taste in chips.
