Israeli researchers have printed a 3D heart using a patient’s own cells, something they say could be used to patch diseased hearts -- and possibly, full transplants.


The heart the Tel Aviv University team printed in about three hours is too small for humans -- about 2.5 centimeters, or the size of a rabbit’s heart. But it’s the first to be printed with all blood vessels, ventricles and chambers, using an ink made from the patient’s own biological materials.


“It’s completely biocompatible and matches the patient,” reducing the chances of rejection inside the body, said Tal Dvir, the professor who directed the project.

Yet another great breakthrough. It has been about a year or so since they first printed organs but it seems now they have the tech down to a degree that is compatible with humans and the next step is to go bigger.

Jews did this?

So does that mean people like Omar would refuse such organs?

This is Star Trek replicator stuff, and I have a hard time grasping it. Probably, it's some alien technology.


Question though: If we're going to develop technology to extend human lives, oughtn't we oughta be thinking of, er, adding lives, reproduction, overpopulation, like?
