That's frightening and awesome all at once.

It would be CRAZY if 3d biological printers somehow lead to extended or dare I say... infinitely long life.

Maybe they can make a silk purse out of it.

You think maybe they could've compressed that JPG a little more? I thought I was looking at a chessboard.

He'll get here eventually, no need to summon him.

No, he studiously avoids threads that promote his hobby horse.

Why would I want an ear with a 3D printer?

That would be nice, wouldn't it? And we could all just ... get along!

FTFA: Researchers first built a mould for the ear using collagen from cows and cartilage cells from sheep. The cells were then implanted under the skin of lab rats...

Pretty cool stuff. A little further off from the ear mouse experiment with a 3D printer added.

Been seeing pictures of this wee guy for around 15 years.

Did they mention whether the Sheep/Bovine collagen was going to be used in the final product for human trials?

But seriously, how long until furries/trekkers start getting elective surgery for cat/vulcan ears?

What's next?  12 inch 3D printer penises?  Yeah, it's probably coming.

A penis is a rudimentary printing device.

A Uterus is a complex 3-D printing device.

I bet it s cheaper to buy a new printer than buy sheep cell cartridges.

A Uterus is a complex 3-D printing device.


Which means the penis is just there to refill the toner.

Oddly, this whole exchange seems extraordinarily wise.

I plan to live forever, of course, but barring that I'd settle for a couple thousand years. Even five hundred would be pretty nice.
