-- The profound prospect of being able to separate, measure, alter or treat
specific cells in a living organism’s blood stream.
-- Cranial remodeling devices made by additive fabrication designed to treat
head deformities in infants.
-- Implanted electrode arrays to control artificial limbs and other
neurologically-complex functions.
-- A method of making customized gun components from data sent over the web
that may have implications for other fields that use a similar scheme.
