“Bionic” ear merges electronics with tissue

http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S36/80/19M40/index.xml?section=topstories Princeton Professor Michael McAlpine has created a prototype artificial ear using 3D printing of cells and nanoparticles followed by cell culture to combine a small coil antenna with cartilage. ¬†This functional ear can “hear” radio frequencies far beyond the range of normal human capability.
