3D Printed Body Parts

13 Mar

This rather dark comic imagines what life might be like if our brains were impervious, and we had 3D printers on hand to print out a new body any time we needed one.

Sci Fi? Then what about this :

A patient in Connecticut had a damaged skull. So, to fix him up, the doctors ordered a replacement part printed out on a 3D printer. If they can print a skull, they can print a whole skeleton. And other researchers have managed to print out ears in the lab, using a 3D printer to inject living cells into a framework, and another group can print with stem cells.

Maybe the comic is not as far out as it seems?
