Harvard scientists have embedded a GIF into the cell of bacteria. With this technology, any and all digital information could be contained in a molecular storage unit. That unit would be invisible to the naked eye and be contained on your person (under your skin, perhaps?) at all times. Yaniv Erlich, a computer scientist and biologist at Columbia University who was not involved in the study, says it represents a scalable way to host information in living cells that could eventually be used in human cells.
This latest GIF in this experiment in bacteria was very lo-res though. 🙂 RE
