Darryl and Kanga are brothers with a deep, dark secret that could get them killed. You see, the boys are robots, hiding in plain sight among their robophobic human neighbors in 1990’s small-town Michigan. Darryl—the “mom” of the pair—is content for he and his brother to fly under the radar as forgettable weirdos, avoiding any undue attention. But when Kanga shows a preternatural talent for basketball and makes the junior varsity team, both of the boys are thrust into the spotlight and the danger of being discovered increases exponentially.

There’s a phrase in cardiology: ‘Time is muscle.” The longer a heart attack victim has to wait for treatment, the more heart tissue dies.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Care for heart problems could soon be easier to get for people in rural states like Montana. Researchers are now testing a device that could allow physicians to remotely perform cardiac procedures using a robot and the internet.
