Grow-a-NanoRaptor

Now here is an example of the fusion between the made and the born, most kids would crave for. Much better than the robotic dino toy. Designed by evolution!

Hopefully this genetic surprise doesn't grow genetically wild and eats its owner. Luckily it is just an imaginative product – so far.

Koert, zal Jesse een leuk idee vinden ... maar ja helaas, haha... zul je hem toch even moeten uitleggen dat het helemaal een onzin verhaal!

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.
