With the push of a button – plus a lot of design work and hours of waiting – the emerging technology of 3D printing can produce food, plastic phone accessories, even human tissue. In the video below Science correspondent Miles O'Brien of American evening television news program PBS NewsHour explores how businesses and schools are creating everything from speakers to ballet shoes, as well as serious challenges and risks presented by ever-widening printing possibilities. He visited Cornell university, Shapeways, Buford middle school, University of Virginia and interviewed professor Hod Lipson, San Francisco artist Micah Scott, and Shapeways CEO Peter Weijmarshausen etc.

In Miles O'Brien reports on 3-D printers shaping food, author A.J. Jacobs and his wife taste test a completely 3D printed meal. Image in the future a meal can be created in seconds by pushing a few buttons. "It was the "weirdest" meal in my life." said A.J. Jacobs.
