Artifical Life Just Around The Corner

Or so it seems. It's been quite a week for science. First we hear from a couple of German physicists that they've found a way to go faster than the speed of light, and now practitioners in the field of "wet artificial life" say they'll have created artificial life within 3 to 10 years. That's all well and good, but before that I'd really like to get the flying car I ordered back in the year 2000.
