Good News: We can 3D Print Faces from DNA

DNA-MugshotA while back I told you about an artist who was collecting DNA to use in creating 3D faces for an art installation. Of course, the law can’t keep their long arms out of things so now they’re trying to use the technology to 3D print mug shots from DNS they find at crime scenes.

They’ve still got a way to go. That is to say that they can’t actually do what they say they can do, but they’re hoping that in the next 10 years or so they’ll be able to print up a copy of the suspect and use that on America’s Most Wanted. So long as they throw my copy in jail instead of me and let me continue my reign of terror I’m fine with it.
