While 3D printed tissue has previously been in the news, this was the first attempt at creating a fully functioning organ with embedded electronics.

Scientists at Princeton University have created 3D ear cartilage with an antenna that extends beyond normal human range.

Using 3D printing tools, silver nanoparticles and cell culture, the scientists from New Jersey created a functional bionic ear which can detect radio frequencies beyond the normal human rage.

While 3D printed tissue has previously been in the news, this was the first attempt at creating a fully functioning organ with embedded electronics.
