I don't know, really.(lol) Something about the word tissue just struck me off.
It's all tissue. Hamburger is fat tissue and muscle tissue. I think hamburger meat will be easier to make in a lab than say something like a steak, but eventually, if they can grow organs, why can't they grow a complete muscle like you would find on an animal and make steak out of it.

<quoted text>Now y'all mentioned transplant organ stuff.
Yes, they are doing that now in a limited way. They grew a human ear on a mouse.
I think skin for burn victims has been grown in a Petri dish. A plastic form or mold was used to shape a new face reconstruction for the guy who was electrocuted or that lady chewed up by the ape.
Used the patients own cells.
Yes, this all will be pretty normal everyday stuff in the not too distant future.

Good evening. Thought you might find this interesting.
3D printing with stem cells could lead to printable organs
http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57567789-...
A potentially breakthrough 3D-printing process using human stem cells could be the precursor to printing organs from a patient's own cells.
,,,,,,,,,,
So far, bio-printing has been applied to build three-dimensional tissues and organ structures of specific architecture and functionality for purposes of regenerative medicine. Here we propose to adapt this technology to building meat products for consumption. The technology has several advantages in comparison to earlier attempts to engineer meat in vitro. The bio-ink particles can be reproducibly prepared with mixtures of cells of different type... Printing ensures consistent shape, while post-printing structure formation and maturation in the bioreactor facilitates conditioning... We anticipate that this Phase I application will result in a macroscopic size (~2 cm x 1 cm x 0.5 mm) edible prototype and will demonstrate that bio-printing-based in vitro meat production is feasible, economically viable and environmentally practical. Successful in vitro meat engineering addresses a number of societal needs, thus the commercialization of the method has high market potential.

Thanks for sharing. That's very interesting. 3d printing sounds like the way to go.

I think the cost savings alone will make this inevitable. It will be much cheaper to grow the meat than to grow an entire cow. The benefits to the environment will be significant too, but that's just the icing on the cake.

Star Trek Replicator to Become a Reality on ISS

Delivering supplies to astronauts in space is kinda tricky. So NASA is sending a 3-D printer to the International Space Station next year, to test whether the technology can work in microgravity.

Wow!
