DNA is a hugely promising medium for storing data. Consider that a cell nucleus can hold the instructions for an organism as complex as a human. So far efforts to store non-genetic data in DNA have been carried out in test tubes, but now scientists have encoded a GIF into the genome of living bacteria.

The scientists from Harvard University used the CRISPR genome-editing tool to store a picture of a hand and an animation of a running horse adapted from Eadweard Muybridge's 1878 photographic study Human and Animal Locomotion in the genome of E. coli bacteria.

More importantly, they were able to retrieve the image of the hand perfectly and the GIF with 90 percent accuracy by sequencing the bacterial genomes. Their results were published in the journal Nature on Wednesday.

How long before they'll be able to design electronic circuits out of living material? This could potentially lead to the ability to build computers or tracking devices made from flesh and can be permanently stored in the human body. The power source can be drawn from the human body as the body generates electricity somehow in signal transmission through the nerves, and the firing of neurons in the brain.

Awesome tech but knowing this world, definitely unwanted and God already made a perfect design of the human body. No modifications needed, although the human race has significantly degenerated thanks to sin.
