Lab-made windpipe (Trachea)

The DIT of Weds. July 6, 2011, had a video of a 3 D Copy machine that can make machine parts, gadgets, and more.

The video we viewed at that time was of a Wrench that was copied and made in the 3D copy machine.

If you did not see that DIT, do it now.  It is amazing!

But, as amazing as that was, did you know that something similar is now being done with human parts?


A 3D copy machine is not being used but a human windpipe (Trachea) has been made using stem cells which were allowed to grow on a form.

Wow !!!

But, rather than going into the details here, perhaps you will want to read the article and see the actual windpipe.

This is another "we are not in Kansas anymore, Toto…' event.  HERE'S THE LINK
