Heroes of the Storm is adding Overwatch’s Lúcio to its roster

Heroes of the Storm is getting a musical new character.

Feel the healing beat, Diablo.

Blizzard announced today that Lúcio will be the newest character for its multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) Heroes of the Storm. He will enter the game’s test servers on February 6. Heroes of the Storm is a free-to-play game for PC. Adding new characters is the best way to keep people engaged and earn more revenue, since players can spend in-game currency or real money to unlock new heroes.

Heroes of the Storm includes characters across all of Blizzard’s franchises, including Diablo, Warcraft, and StarCraft. This is the third Overwatch character to join Heroes of the Storm, following Tracer and Zarya. Overwatch has become a huge hit for Blizzard since it launched last May for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It has over 25 million registered players.

Just like in Overwatch, Lúcio is a healer in Heroes of the Storm. He can play two songs to support his team. One restores teammates’ health, while the other increases movement speed. He can also periodically “amp up” his music, boosting their effectiveness for a short period of time.

Kevlar cartilage could help you recover from joint injuries

It can be difficult to fully recover from knee injuries or other damage to your joints, if just because there hasn't been an artificial replacement for cartilage that can withstand as much punishment as the real thing. That may not be an issue in the long run, though: scientists have developed a Kevlar-based hydrogel that behaves like natural cartilage. It mixes a network of Kevlar nanofibers with polyvinyl alcohol to absorb water at rest (like real cartilage does in idle moments) and become extremely resistant to abuse, but releases it under stress -- say, a workout at the gym.

You don't even need a lot of it to replicate a human body's sturdiness and overall functionality. A material with 92 percent water is about as tough as real cartilage, while a 70 percent mix is comparable to rubber. Previous attempts at simulating cartilage couldn't hold enough water to transport nutrients to cells, which made them a poor fit for implants.

There's a long way to go before the material becomes useful. Researchers are hoping to patent the substance and find companies to make it a practical reality. The implications are already quite clear, mind you. If it works as well in patients as it does in lab experiments, it could lead to cartilage implants that are roughly as good as the real tissue they replace. A serious knee injury might not put an end to your running days.
