Printing a Human Bladder and Kidney

Dr. Anthony Atala gives an interesting TED talk about printing organs on 3D printers using cells. One of the printers is on stage printing an organ while he speaks. He goes through many of the techniques, and even introduces a patient who received a printed bladder a decade ago. The patient, Luke Massella, talks about the life-saving technique that saved his life.

Pay attention, folks: this is the future.
