3D printing is the way of the future. We can now print anything from drugs to new shells for hurt tortoises, or even braces - at a fraction of the cost of regular production.

But what about 3D printing in chemical vats? A company called BAE systems is now looking to do just that so that they can grow their own drones in the lab in weeks rather then months.

Check it out in the video above to see how it works, and welcome to the future.
