The organic sensor seems to be like fusion reactors. Revolutionary potential that is always the same distance in the future, year after year.

you can't say that unless 2017 passes and there is still no sign of an impending organic sensor camera release. The first widespread fuji/panasonic hype about organic sensors seems to come from an announcement last year, and there was no given timeframe, which means it was at least a good 4 years from production. A fuji associated photographer mentioned 2016 timeframe.

a practical fusion reactor is i think a much more difficult problem than a consumer organic sensor camera

I do think the organic sensor would be a lot easier to do, yes. But just like commercial fusion has been '20-30 years away' for like 70 years, it seems that the organic sensor, with massive dynamic range and resolution, has been '2-3 years away' for the last several years, at least in terms of people breathlessly anticipating it. The time scales are different, but the concept is the same.
