Nerds from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid are about to experience the world’s most disgusting printer jam. They have developed a prototype of a printer that prints one of the first living human organs…skin. This bio-skin replicates the natural structure of human skin and can be produced in large scale for cosmetic, chemical and pharmaceutical product testing. It can also produce autologous skin. That’s a ten-dollar word that means “cells from one individual.” (Use it later. Impress your colleagues.) The autologous skin would be appropriate for individual patient uses such as severe burns. It doesn’t take a dermatologist, PETA representative or Xerox repair man to realize the amazing potential here.
