    How about a new ear or as in my home new knee cartlidge

    For those of you thinking what the heck is going to be done with a 3D printer take a look at this article.


    Now this was done by an artist but ...check out the TED talks on this subject and mix the two technologies.

    Good Grief. I got on to TED and ended up leaving my woodworking project for a couple hours---AND I seldom watch TV or things like this.

    Let's see, maybe I should eat dinner and get back to making coasters.

    Thanks Rob. That was quite a diversion from my "typical" day.

    Enjoy,
    JimB
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Well Jim given your past association with the medical profession, i would be real interested in hearing your thoughts on the TED talks you watched.

    I do watch TED talks a lot, specially when I'm flying from one site to another. They are very interesting, thought provoking and much better than most TV shows or programs. As you can choose by theme, you can taylor them to your liking.
    Best regards,
    Toni
