Will 3D printing a human become possible?

Monday, December 16th, 2013

I was on the phone. I am in love. I miss her. I wanted to crawl through the wire and be with her.

I explained that one day – sooner than we might think – it will be possible. Our body (and even our mental state) is basically just energy. We can already measure a lot of the state of energy at the subatomic level; just not yet at the large scale needed for instantly “scanning” the state of the energy of a human being. And, since we are already making progress with 3D printing, just like that we can store that state of our body and, eventually, be able to recreate that elsewhere on demand.

For now I will have to miss my girl, but for how long? What are your ideas?
