Ink Jet Skin Printer

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

The article linked below describes an interesting new method of grafting skin onto burn victim's wounds. The researchers have created an "Skin Jet" printer, similar to a standard Ink Jet printer that sprays an emulsified mixture of skin cells and healing agents on the wound. The first layer is a healing / grafting mixture and the second layer is a protective layer. Pretty cool stuff.

Of course, when I see these kinds of nano-technology based applications I think of ways these new processes can be brought to bear on construction processes. If we can heal human skin this way we should certainly be able to repair / protect concrete, steel and other building materials.
