This is one serious iPod dock. It comes from a company called Life Technologies. It’s a new genome machine called The Personal Genome Machine. It’s actually made for research, not for your home, although I bet you want one now.
The device is about the size of a printer and weighs 65 pounds. A touch screen interface is used for testing and will deliver results in a few hours. Semiconductor sensors measure hydrogen ions produced during DNA replication allowing the machine to directly translate genetic information into digital information.
Whatever all of that means, we just think it’s cool.
