Print the Body Electric

Hard enough for people to imagine that you can “print” a real, three-dimensional object and use it like any other (even though those same people generally have no clue how most everyday objects are manufactured) then along come stories of printing body parts. And for the latest on that front, medGadget has an update.

This reminds me of Cronenberg’s “The Fly“; specifically the baboon screw-up and the steak taste-test afterward. Wonder if we’ll be printing our food in the future (not like chef Homaru Cantu in Chicago who I’ve mentioned previously, but printing a part that is then sold at the grocery, taken home, and cooked like the real thing)? Wait a sec, how do we know this isn’t already happening!? Just remember, soylent green is people.

What a creepy subject.
