Don't get too excited and rush to the market: this genetically modified egg is but a concept from the mind of designer Dominic Wilcox. In a recent exhibition in Italy, Wilcox presented his thoughts on the pros and cons of genetic modification. On the one hand, an egg genetically modified to resemble a cup for ease of eating would make breakfast more simple. On the other hand, is the chicken okay with that? Science has come a long way, fueled by curiosity and enabled by new technology. In South Korea, they can clone dogs now. Again, on the one hand a million puppies would be great. On the other hand, how long before they clone a million Lee Myung-baks? Food for thought.
Some of Wilcox's other scientific musings:
Wilcox published a book on conceptual designers that would make life easier. It is called Variations on Normal.
Variations on Normal is available on Amazon
