    I never thought I would see organ produce this early in my lifetime. This is amazing.

    Definately a fascinating addition to science!! I heard this item discussed on NPR, though they did acknowledge a bladder is much simpler organ, compared to a kidney or heart. Still the implications of this technology point to a day when in vitro organ generation will be commonplace.
