Welcome to the world of tomorrow! Just this year, an 83 year old women with a badly infected lower jaw, was given a replacement jaw printed to fit her in a LayerWise 3D printer. According to the BBC, the jaw was made out of titanium powder that was heated with lasers and fused together layer by layer. The replacement jaw only took a handful of hours to print, and the surgery went quicker than normal, and the patient was swallowing and talking within a day. That’s right, not only is this jaw naturally more badass than a regular jaw, but the whole process was much more pleasant. Not only are we living in the future, things are more awesome than expected! Now if someone presents a successful Tricorder for the X-Prize, we will have achieve world peace, visit the stars, and money won’t be a necessity anymore, right? A girl can dream.
Live Long and Prosper.
