Another Iteration of Artificial Heart

With the rising number of uninsured, the incredible cost of end-of-life care that already exists, the economic crisis, and the growing public awareness of the cost of healthcare, can we really afford to splurge on artificial hearts any longer?

I wonder.

But this new device does look cool. But if it's really like the real thing, as the article suggests, could someone explain what the blue thing hanging off the pump correlates to in man?
