using an ordinary Inkjet Printer

Charleston and Clemson scientists are using modified desktop printers to produce three-dimensional structures of living tissue, seen as a tiny first step toward printing entire organs and personalizing medicine.

The latest miracle in biotechnology is a fully functional penis grown from an animal's own cells. But this isn't just good news for Lorena Bobbitt's next husband. No matter how you slice it, it's a breakthrough for anyone who will ever need any type of solid organ replaced. As chief researcher Anthony Atala explained to New Scientist magazine, "The penis is more complex than any of the organs we have engineered so far."

i heard about this on cnn a few months back,

they said they were even traying to make computer chips and such like that..

I had a really good link on cnn for this one, i printed it out a few mths ago but can't find it online now. computer chips, i don't know how would they do that, possibly a chip that can be injected and feeds your dna information. Would be interesting eh?

i hope not,

i thought they were trying to copy a cpu?

hmmmm making organic computer chips. I wonder how far they would go with it. If something is alive wouldn't there be the possibility of it eventually becoming self aware in the far distant future. Or have I just watched too much science fiction.

Way too much science Fiction...But there is a small chance of that happening too...But Very small.

i dont think they were trying to make a "organic" computer chip,

i think they were trying to "print" out a reguler cpu..

but i dont know how they could make it other then a copy with papper?

Could an advancement form of this technology lead to replicators?

sorry Dmsoldier I totally misunderstood.I thought you meant they were gonna print chips using the printing cells technology.
just pretend you didn't read my post
