Scientists are hard at work so you can use a modified ink-jet printer to make yourself some bacon. Tissue engineers from the Medical University of South Carolina, and Clemson University, have been printing biomaterials with modified ink-jet printers. The cartridges are filled with suspensions of living cells then the software that controls the characteristics of the ink does the rest. If ink jet cartridges are expensive now wait until you have to replace a hickory smoked bacon flavor cartridge.
