14 Fall 2009 Transmedics http://www.transmedics.com/wt/home/index ResouRces andy droid: your sex doll has arrIved KRISTI SCOTT Real Doll just doesn't cut it anymore. You look to the future: innovation, the next stage of evolution and you shouldn't leave your sex life behind you on the path to posthumanity. Let me introduce you to a new friend, who you can play with in your own personal fantasy playground. Her name is Andy, created by First Androids in Germany. Andy can hold multiple sex positions, be ordered to simulate breathing, perform oral sex acts, have a pulse, be equipped with a g-spot that responds to orgasm, and much, much more. The list of possibilities is impressive. Linny, one of the other dolls, has the most realistic fake areolas I have ever seen, and I've seen my fair share. What First Androids has created is not just a sex doll, but an innovative sexual experience straight from the pages of science fiction which you can order and play with alone or with a friend.

It's a portable machine that keeps the organs in a viable state longer than any cooler. While federal law currently limits the TransMedics system to investigational uses, the technology is a solution to serious problems incurred by medical staff in transporting organs. The system is set up with a wireless and portable monitor that allows monitoring of the organ's vitals inside the device, including viewing the organ through a sterile plastic window. The machine has special bags for the fluids needed to keep the organ preserved. The various valves and monitors are hooked up to the organ within the sterile container, with multiple options for connections depending on the organ. According to their website, this allows for "healthier organs, better matching, less urgency, and more organs." With this technology, the medical community will be able to get more organs to the people who need them and not let good donations go to waste because of outdated transportation methods.
