OK, I know this is not a terribly active board, but I do own a few shares and if there are are any others out there who follow this stock, this headline might catch your attention.

This came out today in the University of Buffalo Reporter:

Headline:
Rapid Prototyping Machine to Assist UB Biomedical Researchers

UB biomedical engineers have acquired a rapid-prototyping machine to aid their groundbreaking efforts to manufacture living tissues and organs, and fabricate customized implants and prostheses, among other projects.

(Near the end of the article, they explain a bit more about the living tissue part.) Full story at: http://www.buffalo.edu/reporter/vol35/vol35n35/articles/PrototypeMachine.html

I don't always click through to other links when I'm reading TMF boards, but in this case, it's probably worthwhile. If you own SSYS for the long-term implications, this is a very interesting development. Maybe all hype, but interesting nonetheless.
