Throughout the discussions of 3D organ printing, the benefits were immediately acknowledged, and then the ethical considerations and concerns. For our video presentation of the idea surrounding the technology, Patsy and I decided to create a cautionary tale that recognized both the benefits and potential misuse of such technology. The idea of an enhanced organ came from brainstorming, but the specific use of a super liver to drink more came from one of our participants during the interviews. It is a satirical take on how people can initially begin abusing technology, and then continue the abuse on a “next version” never ending cycle.
