      Good video but it's advisable to refrain from phrases like "engineered by nature". While I understand what you mean other people could get the wrong idea of it or yet worse, maliciously take it out of context.

      Your new logo looks like two legs spread wide open.

      I don't think either logo is perfect really. At least the old one wasn't as heavy and imposing. The new one tries to fix a fundamental issue of empty space in a completely unsuitable way.

      What the hell is wrong with you, the new logo is too thick, which gives it a heavy, blotchy and soft.. which makes it a pain to look at.

        Damn bro, how do you know all of these things, from weapons, robots, and even medicine. I love binge-watching your videos. As someone with a medical background, this is damn accurate. I have a theory that you are actually an AI. LOL!

        Good stuff

                                Wait you paid for someone to take your existing logo icon and make it fatter? Dang what a waist of money, your original looked WAY better.

                                  what we really need is a backup for when the heart stops suddenly or we start having a heart attack
                                  something that can lay dormant for years but when critically low blood pressure is detected it can activate and keep us conscious for around 15-20 minutes while we get to a hospital

                                  due to the limited space in the body it would probably need to go inline with an artery like the femoral artery or aorta and no clue where the battery would go, but it is an interesting concept to think about, having a few precious minutes to escape an unsurvivable condition (either that or my hypochondria is acting up again)

Thatz kinda fast :O The fastest bacteria can only achieve a measly velocity of 0.5 mm/s on their own power

I'm a college student really interested in medical devices but there's not a lot of material on things like pacemakers out there! I would love for you to do more of these (unless there's a place you can direct me to already).
