"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."
Laura Bosworth explains how 3D printing can make organ shortages a thing of the past, starting with Breast Cancer survivors:
- 3D printing has been around for decades, what's changed is that the cost has dropped.
- Similar to the replicator in Star Trek.
- Working on 3D printing food.
- Modern Meadow -- Using cow and pig cells to 3D print pieces of meat.
- 3D printers have been used to create custom hearing aids for decades.
- Custom printing for vets who need to have skulls rebuilt.
- Functioning kidneys printed in China.
- Functioning livers printed in U.S.
- 18 people a day currently die due to organ shortages.
- It could take decades until this is widely available.
- Nipples for breast cancer survivors is the first step.
