Gabe Barcia-Colombo: My DNA vending machine


Filmed August 2013 at TED Fellows Retreat 2013

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it.
