Whoa: You Can Now Turn Your DNA Into a Scarf
From Apple Watches to Fitbits, wearable technology is having its moment in the spotlight. But have you ever thought of wearing your actual DNA? Well, a new brand is making it happen.
Wired reported on Dot One, a company that uses your DNA to create one-of-a-kind patterns for scarves and other accessories. How does it work? The brand sends you a DNA test kit so you can take a simple cheek swab. You use a pre-addressed envelope to send the sample to a lab, where it is then turned into a unique pattern based on your genetic sequences.
The final product is a colorful, hand-woven scarf made of 100% lambswool. (Dot One can also turn your DNA into posters or family trees.) Fascinating, right? Head over to Wired if you're curious about the exact science behind the process.
Scroll down to see what your DNA scarf would look like, and shop one for yourself!
