Print Living Cells Using a Standard Inkjet Printer

The folks at Clemson University have come up with a method to modify an inkjet printer to print living cells.  It makes me think of all sorts of fun applications, like how long will it be until I can print business cards with psychedelic,  live, bioluminescent ink that glows in the dark.  Dude!   How cool is that?  Just rummage through your garage for aold laminar flow cabinet, a sonicator, a centrifuge and an old inkjet printer, then watch the video.  You can read all about it here.
