What makes the printers a must have in every home around the globe is due to how convenient it is, along with easy to create any object the mind can think of. What makes the printer so convenient is it can literally create any object for any purpose. It is a hard concept to grasp, the printer can actually make any object. When thinking about object or reasons you would need to print something out nothing pops in to the mind, but when thinking about what needs to fixed around the house then the ideas start to flow in. “You could print stuff out in any material, such as glass, metal, and even food”( FW: Thinking). This means if anything breaks the material could be easily matched. Let’s say a button broke on the keyboard why not print a new…show more content…
From there Tom edited the photo and was able to make it into a 3D object allowing anyone to download and print the lion themselves. 3D printers are not just meant for fun at the home, but they can save lives. That’s right 3D printers are starting to make their way into the hospitals, to help develop ways they can save lives. “Realistically, we 're going to be living to 100 ...110. With bio-printed organs, living to 110 won 't be anything like living to that age today," contends Jack Uldrich, a technology trend expert. "We 're already printing skin, kidneys, a replica of a beating human heart. If a person loses a limb, we 'll be able to print, layer by layer, a replacement. It 's theoretically possible.”(Federico-O 'Murchu). The average life expectancy is around 80 years old, with the 3D printers they are able to increase the lifespan of a human by almost 150 percent. Regarding the difficulty of creating human body parts varies on which part needs to be produced. Take creating an ear for example, that is much easier than creating a fully function heart. The process which is used to create an ear is slightly different from creating an organ. The labs create the gelatin like cartilage material, they then use a 3D printer to lay the matter out in the shape of an ear. The now 3D object is covered in cells and kept in a temperature controlled room to ensure the cells will spread and become healthy enough to be planted on to the host body. “At the other end of the longevity
