3D bioprinting is just as the term beautifully suggests: printing body parts, organs and tissues that can be used by humans in the future. The idea is to use cells along with compatible synthetic materials for the manufacture of 3D bioprints.
A 3D bioprinter can be found in Wake Forest University; and the scientists there are working on making 3D bioprinting a reality. Successful tests on rats and mice are seen as good indication of things to come. Eventually this technology will be useful on humans. Now imagine having the capacity to replace an ailing organ or body part with your own cells!

At the consumer level, we can 3D print almost everything from the most trivial single items to complex high end projects that would require more than one printing and putting together. We’re good with that for now; for surely, in the future, we are going to be able to create more things with 3D printing technology!
