    Bioprinting (printing out organs) will be *amazing*.

    Blood-vessels are already being done. Something like a liver or kidney should be able to be done in about 5 years or so – maybe less. I’d expect to see bioprinted hearts in about 10 years.

    I think even eyes will be possible. Difficult, but eventually possible (in maybe 15-20 years).
