3D Printing An Organ – Live Onstage at TED
Well, we have been hearing about the 3D printing of organs for a while — and there are reports that a MakerBot Operator with a heavily modified Cupcake is engaging in this very work: printing plastic scaffolding for stem-cell “curing” of organs.1
Here is a great talk about the present practice and future potential of 3D bioprinting.
And here is a great link to read more about the program exploring this technology.
- Or as Marty in the Botcave has just said it — “rafting an organ on a 3D printer.” [↩]
