Science has been amazing us for centuries. More specifically, the field of health and medicine has been making great gains, particularly in the past few years. Modern medical advancements continue to push the limits of our brains, and help multitudes of people with illnesses and conditions. There are teams of researchers and scientists who are dedicated to studying the complex problems that continue to stump us. Yet, they have developed plenty of mind-boggling creations and projects.

This is a list of ten body parts that are being redeveloped and engineered by experts. Imagine having a nose that could smell sickness in the air? Or a leg that did the thinking for you to help you walk? Thanks to modern technology and the advent of the digital age, we are living in very exciting times. 3-D printers are being used to create realistic human ears, and one man has used USB tech to transform his finger into a small database.

You will marvel at the advancements and strides medical scientists and researchers are making. We may be closer than ever to providing diabetics with an accurate and efficient pancreas. The difficult-to-understand connection gap between images and sight is starting to close. Medicine is truly incredible.

It sounds like something out of a science fiction film: fingers that are their own USBs. An artificial finger that can store up to two gigabytes of data has been created by Jerry Jalava, a Finnish programmer who lost his finger in an accident. How does it work? As you might imagine, Jalava can peel back his fingernail and stick his finger into a USB jack. The artificial finger looks totally normal, until you take it off and store it in your computer. Jalava plans to further develop the digital digit by adding memory, an RFID tag, and a removable tip.
