Since it is Sunday, let's have a genetically photoshopped egg with a handy integrated eggholder. Not sure if these should be mass produced (if possible): Too painful for the chicken.

Obviously, we simply need to genetically engineer future chickens with the shape of the eggs in mind.

I don't think it's just a 'silly' picture I think it's a clever idea. The picture is only presented as a concept and a nice fun idea it is too, he's not saying he actually genetically modified a real egg. His other work on his site is interesting also.

The egg shell in picture looks to me more like made of chocolate. I will wait for the day when eggs shell is made of chocolate and nobody will crib about eating egg shell :)

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
