[BBC] Woman fitted with prosthetic jaw made by a 3D printer.

A 3D printer-created lower jaw has been fitted to an 83-year-old woman's face in what doctors say is the first operation of its kind.
The transplant was carried out in June in the Netherlands, but is only now being publicized.
The implant was made out of titanium powder - heated and fused together by a laser, one layer at a time.

If anything makes me feel like we're living in the future it's 3D printers.
Also is it really necessary to put a logo on it? I hope that didn't make on to the final prosthetic.

Lol yeah. We'd obviously need the right ingredients. A food printer would be awesome tho. Although I wonder what it'd smell like after a while...

Also, we would start seeing places like FFjunkie(fast food junkie) poppin up with McDonalds suing for illegal torrenting of Big Mac meals.
