The idea for this tech has been about fora good few years … there was stuff about ten years ago about it if you look back! It’s just not been very widely reported for some reason (mby honing the tech or something). There’s been talk about possibilities at some point of being able to build organic things cell by cell via the same tech at some point in the future (seen’s as we are discusing synthetic meat in the other thread).
It does look bloody cool though, it’s basicaly a massive dot matrixs printer that builds up things verticaly as well as horizontaly and obviously dosn’t use ink.
(EDIT, I just read we can already print food lol)
