This is a reality. As some have suggested, it is just a matter of testing on humans, approving, and streamlining the methods of harvesting in different hair restoration clinics around the world.

The existing HT procedures aren't at all scalable either though.

How much more work can it be for someone to grow hair in a test tube than it is to individually cut out the grafts as they do in FUE?

I think the costs will be higher than traditional HT simply because the patients would be willing to pay it - not because the procedure itself is any more expensive to perform.
