dna on your wall



this shit is crazy. DNA11 makes this wall fixture where you send in your saliva and they send back this light configured in the pattern of your DNA.

tomoepet said...

AWESOME!!! Hrm...looks like the matrix?
Well...I would stare at your DNA for hours, Petey. >:D
Maybe Hem's DNA would take the shape of you.

jedi-iwakura said...

Gene-ious.

...

Sorry.

Pixi-sticks said...

That is crazy awesome...

But i'm wondering does it really work or does it make everyones DNA look the same...Because if it does then thats quite the rip off...I most certainly want my DNA to be differnet then my hamsters

ilovepetewentz said...

wow that's wired is that in you'r house? it's awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!

Melanie said...

Oh Geezuz. That's so Jetsons meets creepy doctors office.

It's amazing though, srsly.

It'd be even better if it had an Andy Warhol inspired color scheme.

SurplusLemonade said...

i would SO buy that!! but that's just the bio nerd in me. oh man i could get like a whole wall worth of my dna. that'd be SOO insane!

Shaun said...

That is so cool. People are going to be making out with their televisions next! Or watch for the new era of identity thieves lol!!

dustonabutterflyswing said...

Just not feelin it. I'd rather see water color pictures made with body secretions. Sorry that was sick nasty.....

master0fdisaster said...

That is fucking sweet...I would buy that if I was a rich bastard...

Rachel said...

That's fresh. But I wouldn't want to have to send my spit away, that's kinda gross.

Sam said...

woah. that's some crazy shit. I think it would freak me out seeing my genetic structure mounted on a wall, though.

aliasgrace said...

Did you know there's an FOB gene? It's in yeast:

xohxmyxgod said...

Awesome ^^
I can stare it for ages.

TurnUpTheMusicc said...

oh my god. that is AMAZING! how the hell do they do that?

little voice said...

you have to hope they're not tied to the mob or something and need to cover up their tracks by using your DNA

i am watching the first 48 for some reason.. so this isn't that random of a thought. i was expecting paranormal state to be on though but nope

leesha loo said...

?
thts unique

colin isnt my nickname said...

get some homeless dudes DNA on there and then sell it as a master piece because of the ironicness...

for those slow people, a homeless dude is not going to have that for sevral reason, 1 no home where they guna have it, 2 im assuming out of there price range

P.S i dunno if ironicness is a word but it should be

hilbil said...

i actually did that in a science lab. it was a bitch to do because you have to be extremely careful. but it's cool. =] i would explain how it works, but it's long and probably boring to most people.

brittneyx6 said...

oh my god that is so amazing ! All this new technology is beging to scare me . Who actually has the time to think up stuff like that ? Someone has alot of time on their hands . I want that done now so bad . . . watch ill find out im like an alein or something ! ha ha . Sometimes the unknown is always better

Melanie said...

Wow, that is cool. It'd be fun to compare DNAs with people xD

Someday people are going to be all like "oh, my DNA is so ugly *sigh* "

or "wow that guy has hot DNA!"

.....yeah :p

staygold said...

holy shit.
ahaha.
that's freeking crazy.
i wonder what they'll think of next.

Anonymous said...

i'm pretty sure in a couple of weeks EVERYBODY will know about this blog and u'll get thousands of comments. so...i just wanted to say that that DNA on the wall thing should probably be in a james bond movie with u as 007((james bond))

wooohooooo said...

thats pretty sweet. yeah, id buy that.

Emma said...

WHEW! I JUST learned about that in biology on friday! Sweet!

bianchi said...

AWESOME! what will we think of next? this is so cool =D

jamie said...

OMG. jedi-iwakura's comment made me laugh. =))"GENE-ius"
HAHAHA, okay. Sorry. I'm really shallow like that, but that was funny. LOL.

That is just amazing, good Lord. I want one all over my house! Damn.
What are they gonna make next? A time machine? AWESOME.

Much love.
Jamie

Splary said...

Wow! Something truly unique. Unless you're an identical twin.

Anonymous said...

That's pointless.

who wants to adorn their walls with their own dna.
unless they're pretentious down to their genes..

the outcast said...

that is probably the coolest thing i've ever seen. it should be in a james bond movie with u as 007.

Anonymous said...

I just checked how much they cost =] they start at $390 or £271 for 1 person :) It is pretty cool though. I would buy one if i had money :)
Love ya x

Dianna said...

sweetness man....that would be so cool to have. ha...i'd probably be going around to my friends, "hey....do you mind giving me some of your spit?"

Anonymous said...

Oh that is so cool! Is it in ur house? Whatever. Anyway, check the FOB website and answer ur messages please.

Anonymous said...

I've had to do this in a science lab before. It was tiring, but it really does come out looking that way.

I would honestly buy one, however the fingerprint portraits are nice as well.

fobrox713 said...

wow thats pretty awesome. its probally really expensive though. o well its pretty cool do u have one Pete?

thatgeek. said...

I'm hardcore, I spam Pete's comments and drive him so insane he changes his setting so no-one can post comments.

Slander is welcome.

beccy1606 said...

Having that on my wall would just remind me of work since I run DNA profiles on gels like that every day lol. It gets boring after the thousandth time, but thats what you get for studying genetics lol, its actually not as exciting as it sounds! A light up DNA profile for you wall lol, bizarre...

Dorotea said...

That is insane! I've always regretted not being a sceintist XD

hootsiepop said...

They could frame you for murder now. It's total CSI style.

Gabby said...

If I ever used it, it'd probably shut down or something.

Alyssa Moore said...

Does it come in different colors? Theres no way my DNA is green! haha.

(Na)tasha said...

what a good gift idea-
A remix of your guts-your insides X-rayed kinda like so i can see how you tick

xo♥xo♥

Guav said...

DNA on your wall is better than DNA in your eye :)

shirellee said...

That DNA thing is pretty cool but right now im on how it was posted on

hope you made a wish =)

GOLD said...

This is my favourite.

arrrrieldear said...

i have dna necklace

it just looks like snot in the pool now though

horror park rat jessica said...

That makes me think Matrix.

vera lynn said...

i'm not sure if it should be taken as a post-modern ironic pop art project or an actual device. either way it's vaguely creepy. either way i like it. looks like something you'd spit on, drop acid, and watch for hours.

Anonymous said...

splary aint entirely correct. it's not really unique. one anyone can get it if they have the money. two, one in a million people (approximately) have the same dna fingerprint, you might have the same as someone else without knowing it, despite the fact that you arent related.

xoxo/always said...

this is one of the most amazing things i have seen in a long time. seriously, how far have we come scientifically, when you can send someone your spit- and they send you back art that honestly shows you *exactly* what you're made of. mind blowing.

thanks, peter, now i'm going to be spending a large chunk of my tax return buying this because i can't resist something so amazing (and inherently nerdy)!!

what would i do without you showing me everything that i neeeeed, but never knew existed?!
