Human Heart Beating in a Box

(Video Link)

Researchers at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center have built a machine that keeps a heart designated for transplantation active. Using this machine increases the amount of time that the organ can remain outside of a human body but still suitable for a transplant.

You can skip ahead to 1:10 in the video to see the super freaky cool scene of the heart beating in the life support machine.
