The Ups and Downs of 3D Printing

by Jay Allbritton
Reuters reports that a team of researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh have printed human embryonic stem cells with a 3D printer.

Meanwhile, NPR reports that "Defense Distributed, an organization best known for advocating open-sourced 3-D printing of guns, says its founder, Cody Wilson, is now a federally licensed gun manufacturer and dealer."

If InTrade hadn't gone under they could have laid odds on when the first person would receive an organ transplant from a 3D printer after being shot by a gun from a 3D printer. The race is on.
