How to grow an Orangina bottle.

Van Mensvoort
June 12th 2006

Consider an Orangina bottle: shaped like an orange it is designed to look like one. But it does so in a very primitive way. Imagine the product is the packaging. Wouldn't it be great if we could grow Orangina bottles?

It is not hard to imagine that genetic technology makes it possible to grow oranges with a hard plastic skin. In additon, oranges can be modified to produce enzymes which degrade the flesh of the orange resulting in a self-generated juice... better than the real thing!

Nice site update of the orangina project Debbie.. Lot of text (bit to much maybe) but I like the new image of the green growing bottles.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
