EctoLife, the “world’s first artificial womb facility,” is currently just a concept that would allow parents to have custom-made children.

According to his website, Hashem Al-Ghaili, a producer, filmmaker, and science communicator who resides in Berlin, is a “molecular biologist by trade.”

What is EctoLife?

According to Al-Ghaili, the idea behind EctoLife is based on more than 50 years of ground-breaking scientific research.

The facility, which would be powered by renewable energy, would have up to 400 growth pods or “artificial wombs” in each of its 75 labs. The environment inside these pods is intended to be similar to that found in a mother’s womb.

Through a screen on the pods that displays real-time data, parents can keep tabs on their child’s growth and development. A phone app can be used to monitor this data as well.

 

Hashem Al-Ghaili claims on his website that he uses his “background in science and technology to develop brand-new concepts.” He talks about “imagining the future,” but it’s obvious that some online thought his most recent movie was a real-life advertisement.’

According to the UK’s Metro newspaper, the facility, which would be powered by renewable energy, would have 75 labs with up to 400 growth pods or artificial wombs in each.

The environment inside these pods is intended to be similar to that found in a mother’s womb.

According to experts, the technology is not all that futuristic and might one day become a reality. If ethical constraints are lifted, according to Al-Ghaili, artificial womb facilities may become a reality in about 10 years. He claimed that “every single feature” mentioned in the concept was entirely based on science and had already been accomplished by engineers and scientists.

Around 300,000 women die from pregnancy-related complications, according to the World Health Organization. According to Al-Ghaili, the EctoLife artificial womb is intended to lessen human suffering and lower the likelihood of C-sections. Couples are asked to press a button that “births” their incubated child rather than a mother physically pushing through pain. The project is also intended for women whose uteri were removed due to medical conditions like cancer.
