The Biomimicry or biomimetics, is the science that founds in nature the best source of inspiration. Nature is the wisest one. In nature we can find mechanical systems that work perfectly or also amazing chemical processes, which we can replicate to improve our technology or our products.
However, today we would like to speak about the reverse process, about how human evolution has allowed us to design a 3D printer capable to print a bone. Product design at the service of the human anatomy. Scientists of the Canton University from China, achieved the first experimental transplant of bone whose pieces are 3D printed on true bone dust. Fantastic!
The main difference from the past is that now the bones are made from a more friendly material for animal biology, which causes a lower rate of rejection. So far there are only experiments with small rodents and with some limitations. But surely, this opens the door to new horizons.
