Oxford Scientists Develop '3d Printable Human Tissue'

Organs are going to be replaceable - or even upgradeable. Homo Sapiens, the clock is ticking..

Good news humans! Oxford University have just released a video claiming they have managed to create printabel cells that emulate human tissue. These can be moulded into replacement organs, or - and here's where we get really sci-fi - remote controllable upgrades for existing organs. The example they give for this is an organ that can self-medicate against high blood pressure, but we'd be just as happy with something that could pump pure Gordon's gin straight into our veins everytime we swipe right on our #MothersLittleHelper app. Watch the video below, enjoy it's stirringly optimistic electro-dubstep-techno soundtrack, and feel terrified/ enthused about our weird trans-human future..
