3D Printers Can Run Off Body Parts

"Scientist at Cornell University have been showing the potential for 3D printers by creating a replacement ear using a 3D printer and an injection of living cells... Once refined, the technique will allow biomedical engineers to print customised ears for children born with malformed ones, or people who have lost theirs and have not found them down the back of the sofa. While prosthetic reconstructions are suboptimal; they don't look realistic and they lack the qualities of real tissue, the 3D printer versions are pretty good..."

Ask Ars: If I'm printing in color, should I get a laser or an inkjet printer?

"Question: So I want to print in color, and with the cost of color lasers coming down, I am wondering: laser versus inkjet? When does laser make sense?...It's true that the cost of color laser printers has come down significantly, particularly on the higher end. Most still don't beat inkjet printers in terms of price, but some of their other advantages—speed and volume, namely—can make a high-end laser printer a good investment if you have the up-front money for it.
