Basically 8 year old kids are replicating the greatest scientific achievements in the last 5 years.
People are using "bioblocks", that is computer code that contains the information for specific gene sequences, and mashing them together to create different properties in bacteria... (glow in the dark etc)
Massive implications for the future.
Imagine using bioblocks to make your kid enjoy studying more, make people enjoy fighting, killing, hugging etc.
Could it mean an awesome future? or the end of the human race? maybe the next step of evolution into something altogether different....
Its kind of like fast forwarding evolution but with a choice rather than a forced selection.
what do you think?
