Answer: The Chemputer
The Chemputer is being called a 3-D printer that can print out any drug. Still in development by Lee Cronin, a chemistry professor at Glasgow University, Scotland, the device will have chemical "app" formulas, which will basically bring that drug to life. Cronin hopes to bring the whole concept of apps into chemistry. "What Apple did for music, I'd like to do for the discovery and distribution of prescription drugs," said Cronin in an interview with The Guardian. Such a device would be a boon to telemedicine, especially for residents in desolate regions of the world.
