This project is the representation of constantly evolving technology. With the use of software such as Repetier Host and the BioBot Dual Extrusion Bioprinter, the possibilities are endless. The BioBot Bioprinter is designed with the ability to not only print bio-inks but also living tissue out of human cells. Today, with the use of Pluronic F127 as a material, you see an ear. Tomorrow, you could be looking at a human heart ready for transplant.
