Kissing – A risky business??

I read this article about researchers being able to store “E=mc2 1905″ in a bacterial DNA. Genetic material is becoming the biological harddisk. Bacteria will be the future thumbdrives, USB drives and what not.

You dont need to take backups any more as bacteria replicate themselves in no time you will end up with multiple copies of the same data. No need to burn DVDs or backup on tape drives any more!!! Bacteria on an average need 20 mins to divide. So the bottom line is once in every 20 mins you can double the number of your backups!!

My thoughts then went even further!!

Bacterial backup are bioderadable, no need to worry about disposing unwanted data!!

What’s more striking is the thought about storing one’s private information. No need to store your private info in any external device anymore. Because there is always a risk that somebody might steal the device, say your mobile memory or your hard disk or a DVD.. So I thought why not instead store the info in bacteria and then store the bacteria within us!!

Humans have a great variety of oral bacteria in our mouth. They are harmless and always stay there, except that if you dont brush properly they will increase in n folds and will cause a bad breath!

So cant we store all our personal info in these oral bacteria!! This storage seems to me a lot more safer option than storing our personal info like credid card details, passwords, bank account numbers, social security data etc in some external device.

But be careful then, your saliva contains your personal data, dont get seduced by a stranger and start kissing, you risk your private data by doing so, Data thefts by kissing might be a common news item in the future ;)

But you are at a risk even while you brush, somebody might be waiting down the sewage line hunting for your oral bacteria! Spitting becomes a risky business.. A better way out would be to encrypt the data in the bacteria so that only you can decrypt it..

Store the decrypting key, where else, in your brain!!

  1. I wonder how it could be possible. Any electronic device or work object are all completely based on magnetic field, how could that be possible with bacteria, which we cant even see with naked eyes.

  2. Very much innovate thought. No doubt this will be a reality in future. As people are more inclined towards eco friendly stuff, i’m sure this will undoubtedly eliminate the use of plastic and other harmful substances used in production of storage device. We can also device bio-robots which will be a replication of an individual whose bacteria is fed to it.     

    • Yes, it is also possible that probably we will hide all the data using some bio agents – say bacteria meant only for data storage. Also given the speed with which bacteria multiply, taking multiple backups or scaling storage space shouldnt be an issue.
