3D printing has been used in medicine for a while now for making perfect fitting skull prosthetics, but now a husband-wife team of researchers at Washington State University have figured out how to make artificial bone with a 3D printer to reproduce a wide range of bones in the human body.
Of course, the clever scientists who invented this game-changing new technology probably weren’t thinking at all about creating superheroes. They want to use it to mend stronger bones if someone shatters a hip or a femur or something. How boring. But the good news is that this new titanium foam does allow the bone to breathe and stretch like one would assume adamantium-covered bone would have to do, so that’s a start. Someone just needs to invent adamantium.
