If proven effective in humans, this looks to be one of the most stunning and promising technological breakthroughs of all time.  What comes to mind is Bone's medical wand used in Star Trek to quickly "heal".  Thoughts?

"It takes just a fraction of a second. You simply touch the chip to the wounded area, then remove it. At that point, the cell reprogramming begins."

 

It appears that a single electrical jolt is able to completely change a skin cell's programming, reverting it to a stem-cell type that can be specified, simply by injection of new DNA. This fact alone has astounding implications for human biology and medicine.

 

"This is difficult to imagine, but it is achievable, successfully working about 98 percent of the time. With this technology, we can convert skin cells into elements of any organ with just one touch. This process only takes less than a second and is non-invasive."  Dr. Chandan Sen

I don't need an entire organ just a bit more brain! How expensive is this going to be?

Could this be some sort of an electroporation? Electroporation is known from a long time, it is being used in gene engineering currently, and has been experimented in healing malignant tumors. This looks like a simple electroporetic device, that opens a miliseconds lasting pores of the cell membrane just enough for the gene to enter.

This is insane. I'm reading this and pinching myself. Sounds like an ad for some kind of scammy micarle drug, but source seems legit, so... Future is now, I guess.

Hard to comment without the full paper: https://www.nature.c.../nnano.2017.134

 

However...in mice.

 

Remember BioViva attempting the same thing...reprogramming cells. BioViva used viral transfection. This method uses electrical current. Whatever problems speculated to occur with other methods of reprogramming, would be similar with this method.
