The How of Wow: The Birth of the Replicant

How Of Wow

Have you ever looked at something and asked, “How did they do that?” CKUA’s newest feature, “The How of Wow,” highlights marvels of innovation and technology that are all around us. The stuff Engineers and Geoscientists create can be beautiful, sometimes even iconic, but it has to work.

Amazed by your robotic vacuum cleaner, imagine the next stage of this technology giving birth to muscles and skin that can react to temperature changes, pressure changes or a change in environment.

In a case of Blade Runner coming to the lab, Dr. Anastasia Elias, a Chemical and Materials Engineer is scratching the surface of a ‘replicant’.
