A layer of human skin made from stem cells by a 3d printer

Guys, this is SO MUCH HUGER than this image.  They actually have systems under development that can print directly into a wound.

 The bioprinter has a built-in laser scanner that scans the wound and determines its depth and area. The scan is converted into three-dimensional digital images that enable the device to calculate how many layers of skin cells need to be printed on the wound to restore it to its original configuration. The system has successfully printed skin patches 10 cm square on a pig

Ten years. that’s how long they reckon until this is commonplace.  Ten years. 

And that article is two and a half years old! Check out what they can do now:

Guys pay attention this is IMMENSE
