83-Year Old Women Receive First 3D Printed Jaw

          A few month ago in Belgium, an 83 year old woman has become the world's first recipient of the coolest implant ever: A '3D printed' titanium jaw. That's right, that jaw see above was printed using technology developed by the University of Hasselt BIOMED Research Institute, which took titanium dust and literally printed the three dimensional jaw. It weighs a tiny bit more, but the procedure only took hours instead of the normal few days it usually take and the woman was able to get her daily habits by the next day! True amazing.
