What if organs can be printed? With the advances in bioengineering this might be possible. A new tissue engineering technology now has the ability to arrange culture cells in three dimensions.

In the future, we might be able to manufacture entire organs using as the patient's cells as blueprint, thus avoiding problems with immune rejection. 3D Printers that create human parts and 3D printers in general are driving down costs, soon to be passed into consumer's hands. Now 3D printing organs?
