#GoodNews: Handheld 3D Printer Lays Out Skin For Burn Victims

A new handheld 3D printer can deposit sheets of skin to cover large burn wounds to accelerate the healing process. The device covers wounds with a uniform sheet of biomaterial, called bio ink. It’s dispensed by a small roller and sets the skin in place in two minutes or less. The material promotes skin regeneration and reduces scarring.



BONUS GN: All Australian bush fires have been contained thanks to a week of heavy rain. There are still 24 active fires burning in the region, they are small enough for firefighters to manage accordingly.
