Lab grows living leather jacket

yay. when's the vat-grown beef gonna be ready for the vegans?
Currently, the jacket is still so tiny (it's about 2 inches high and 1-and-a-half inches wide) it could only fit a mouse. It's creators, however, think it's weird that the general public might be grossed out, even though the jacket is made without hurting any animals at all. "...People were disturbed by our ethics of using living cells to grow living fabric, while the use of leather obtained from animals seems to be accepted without any concern for the well-being of the animals from which the skin has been removed."
