McCoy felt like drinking a beer? No problem! Step up to the mike, young lad!

In this article, you can read how scientist using biological matter and a US $1,000 off the shelf 3D printer, have created a “bionic designer ear” that actually functions. This impressive advance in, well printing, would have made Gutenberg, and Treckies alike proud, and that people, that is dope!
