This seems like the beginnings, of a way, to create the support structures needed to grow organs. By adjusting the structure, density, and alignment of these 3D matrices, it might be possible to grow whole organs from a single stock of stem cells. Stem cells tend to turn into bone on hard surfaces, and neurons on soft substrates.

By modifying the structure of the matrix it maybe possible to cause them to turn into any of the 210 different cell types in the human body. Basically  making 3D printing of organs a print (matrix) and pour (stem cells) solution. Now wouldn't that be cool.
