Personalization has been tackled by many industries including healthcare with solutions such as bespoke administration of medicine doses. Research in the area of cellular engineering has also intensified in an attempt to produce compounds that could offer more targeted therapeutic solutions to patients in need. Now, researchers at MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) have invented a way to 3D print a patch of bacteria cells to create a 'living tattoo' which could be used for medical purpose or to fabricate flexible sensors capable of detecting a variety of chemical and molecular compounds. Traditionally, 3D printing uses plastics or nylon to create its…
