My printer can hardly do decent photos. Dread to think what the skin it prints would be like.

It is discussing that skin guy from a bit back. If I remember correctly, it uses stem cells harvested from the skin of the burn victim, them sprays them onto the patient's skin. The skin is able to regrow with less scarring and without a graft. It also takes less time.

EDIT: Quick Google search for an article. http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-02-...astically.html

I think they'd use something more high end than one where the ink is three times the price of the printer...

The reason why skin doesn't grow properly is because the skin cells can't clot fast enough before biodegrading takes place.

I believe some scientist have just figured out a way to spur skin cell regeneration that is fast enough.

Couple with "skin-printing" and those who have been severely burned have new hope.
