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.
