    OMG the future is here.

    This is cool and all, but what about the vampires that need blood to survive? Now they'll have to resort to actual violence if they can't get real blood through hospitals.

    I read about this in the Guardian last week. If I remember correctly, the blood type is '0 Negative', or something or other.
    I think it's absolutely amazing.

    I remember Years back during School, I had a discussion with one of my teachers about artificial blood. We were talking about why we didn't understand why scientists couldn't chemically make plasma etc.
