New Skin Printing Technology for Burn Victims

Call me crazy, but I enjoy the feeling of printing out a lengthy report and having the paper still warm when I staple it all together. Being able to see the finished product right in front of me after having it all on my laptop seconds ago still impresses me.

This skin replacement system sails far above my head, and is much more futuristic than my HP printer, but researchers are hoping this technology will extend to civilians as well. Fires occur at homes on a daily basis and although homes can be replaced through Connecticut home insurance, burns can sometimes never fully heal.
