Technology Highlight – New Scent and Skin Printers

Printer technology has come a long way and we’ve debuted some such as 3D printers here on the Innovations Digest. This time, we bring you two new amazing print technologies. The first is an inkjet printer that allows scents to be printed into ink. Want the distinct aroma of your brand to jump off your add and pull your consumer in? That may be reality sooner than we think. The second, also an inkjet type printer, prints out real human skin and is currently being used to help treat battle field wounds. It lays down cells in large swaths of living tissue which can then be placed on injuries such as burns and major wounds to help them heal faster.
