3D printers are nothing new (we have a few here), but this is a new use for them. Prosthetics=old news. WORKING organs? Pretty cool.

I read an article a number of years ago that discussed this very topic and predicted that the reality wasn't too far away.

Live heart tissue cells will pulse. If you put two next to each other, they will synch up and pulse in unison.

I thought they were working via machines they were connected to...like the blood vessel. It looked as if the machine was pulsing blood through the vessel causing it to contract.
