National Geographic recently documented a new technology developed by military scientists, that can regrow skin.

From Gawker.com: Jörg Gerlach, a researcher with the McGown Institute for Regenerative Medicine, explained the technology to National Geographic’s Explorer: Doctors mix stem cells from the patient’s healthy skin with water to create a serum, which they then load into the skin cell gun and apply “like paint spray” to the wounded area. The result is likened to a salamander growing a new tail: The tissue regenerates.
