Thanks, Chuck, yes, this is certainly one area where 3D printing could be as revolutionary as the Internet. I wouldn't think it possible, but the idea of 3D printing a liver is almost beyond comprehension!

The photo of the 3D-printed nose is stunning. I did a double- and triple-take before I realized that it's an artificial nose. As close up as that photo was, the nose still looked absolutely real.

Great, great slideshow, Liz. The body parts shown in this slideshow are a big reason why the editor of Wired has said that 3D printing will b bigger than the Internet.

3D Printed Body Parts

Fascinating story.  It's easy to see how computer imaging makes it possible to develop "replacement parts" that can be made to custom fit individual needs but harder to understand how to "print" using such a diverse set of materials.  Will be interesting to see how this plays out in the future. The possibilities seem endless for medical applications.

In doing this research, I found all of the innovation happening in the 3D printing world a bit mindblowing. Imagine needing a liver transplant and having it be generated on a 3D printer using live tissue? It's a bit creepy, yes, but also has incredible potential for affordability and accessibility for more people to receive the organs, tissue, limbs and other body parts they may need in the future without having to wear an uncomfortable prosthesis or wait on a long waiting list.

Just how far has handheld gaming technology come? Let's take a look inside the Nintendo 3DS XL and find out.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
