Here’s an unusual use for your DNA – artwork for your home. The kit from ThinkGeek requires a cheek swab for DNA collection. You send the swab in to the lab, where your DNA is processed into one of those electrophoresis spreads so familiar from those forensics shows. The spread is photographed and colorized in the colors of your choice (out of 24 color styles available). In 4-6 weeks, you’ll receive your 8″ X 10″ DNA portrait in a bolted glass frame that can stand or be hung on the wall. The DNA Portrait kit is $149.99.
