Can one imagine human nose being printed using a machine?  Yes, that’s exactly what’s happening in the 3D printing world.  In fact, entire human body parts can be printed using this revolutionary invention.  A student in New Zealand (Victoria University, Wellington) has won James Dyson Award 2014 for 3D printed prosthetic nose!  In fact bio engineers in the UK are able to ‘cultivate’ human skin cells to create a living tissue.  From veins to limbs, from tiny body parts to larger organs, all is possible with 3D printing. 

From cancer patient getting new 3D printed face to growing ears and fingers in the lab may not look norm of the day but are very much in vogue, at least in the medical field.   Ten years from now it will not be surprising to see people going for 3D printed organs than going for the real human (donated) body parts. 3D revolution is not just in medical field but also in manufacturing and military fields and the opportunities are aplenty in any field. 

There are already examples of tools, guns, cars, small house being printed.  This technology is already being used in the food industry for some time now, like printing cake, pastries etc. As the internet revolutionized the communication and business world in mid 1990s, time has come now to revolutionize health, manufacturing and hospitality sectors.
