Devices now powered by small amounts of scavenged energy can be trophic or symbiotic depending on the capacity of nonhumans to act or participate in systems and networks. Multiprotein complexes provide contact between the neighbouring extracellular matrix. Communicating junctions, or gap junctions allow for direct chemical communication between adjacent cytoplasm through diffusion without contact of the extracellular fluid. Self-reconfiguration is needed to endow devices with the flexibility of in-situ challenges, adaptation to unforeseen conditions, with enhanced fault-tolerance.

HYDROZOAN was developed with support from Near Now and the Post Genomics and Plant Biochemistry departments at The School of Biosciences, University of Nottingham.
