# Friday math movie: Printing a human kidney

By Murray Bourne, 08 Apr 2011

Here's an interesting real life application of 2-D and 3-D geometry.

It's now possible to print a human kidney using an inkjet printer. We also see wound repair and a beating heart valve - all artificial.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
