Within 100 years we will be printing human spare parts. Within 200 years we will be printing human beings. You don’t like the fact that you’re too short…remove and replace your legs with longer ones. Forget evolution, we will create our own revolution of species…

I guess that also Boinking will be replaced with a 3-D printer. Not as much fun as during the hippy movement.

Cabinet Maker of the future “First of all, put the kettle on, then take the van to the Timber Merchants and pick up some nice synthetic walnut.
Then you’ve got that job to make and finish. When you’re doing the drawers, do the tails first. When you’re done, put all the tools back and leave the place tidy”

Or synthetic meat… not Quorn or tofu, but meat grown in a laboratory from stem cells. Patty sized pieces for convenience.

Watched a Nova special where they they showed how all the material could be stripped from a cartilage structure and regrown from a couple of new cells. The process was used to regrow a larynx for a woman in Spain, even showed a heart that was being grown beating inside a jar.

The last few years before I retired I worked in DNA deposition (10K micron sized fatures of real DNA printed on microscope slides) and then moved into the in situ printing and chemical synthesis of 90K and up DNA features on microscope slides. These slides are used by research in a similar fashion as the “old” titer plates of 96/348/1536 wells except now there are 90K “wells” and more results can be attaned in a shorter period of time.

During that time we were kept abreast of how our products were helping in research for quite a number of human and plant diseases and that aspect kept most of us going as we could see hard evidence of results.

15 years ago this was not possible and this is just the start!

The basic idea is that in the near future those that want it can have a personal DNA profile on a carry around “key” fob so that doctors can determine which medication will work best with your DNA.
