    A method for printing 3D objects that can control living organisms in predicable ways has been developed by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at MIT and elsewhere. This technique may lead to 3D printing of biomedical tools that can be customized to fit the physical body and biomarkers of its users.

    Sounds very interesting. All sorts of wearable diagnostic products might be possible: Early warning for diabetes, cancer 'sniffers' ( some dogs can do this), hormone secretions,( ovulation/ thyroid ). You might even develop ' artificial organs' implants that respond to deficiencies and create /release chemicals.
