3D printed eye cells could one day cure blindness

Researchers have actually printed viable retina cells using an inkjet printer.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"At the University of Cambridge, researchers have pulled off something of a 3D printing coup. Using lab rats, they’ve printed living central nervous system cells for the very first time. Led by professor Keith Martin, the team actually printed viable retina cells, using an inkjet printer, of all things. The printer was able to first print a layer of retinal ganglion cells and then a layer of glial cells on top of them, all while keeping the tiny structures vital. In doing so, the Cambridge research team was able to prove that eyes and their internal structures can someday be 3D-printed for surgical purposes."

Researchers have developed to "print" or organize lipid droplets in 3D shapes. In the web page-embedded video, they show how these structures can be re-organized after they were prined. 

Very cool stuff!
