Bioprinting

Okay, that is the first word to come out of the modern age that is really, really awesome sounding. That sounds something right out of a science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick.

Bioprinting is the process where by specialists use 3D printers to generate human organs for replacement. "More human, than human, is our motto." It would seem that some companies have begun the first steps into this new field of medicine and industrial technology. The idea being that soon, if you need an new organ, skin graft or what have you that through bioprinting they can make you one.

They built scaffolds of the desired organs and then populate it with cellular tissue.

Bioprinting. Awesome.
