What’s the best gift for the co-founder of Apple’s 62nd birthday? DNA Art from DNA 11, of course!

Steve Wozniak’s surprise birthday party was the hottest event in San Francisco last night. Woz spoke to the crowd alongside his present — the DNA Portrait we created for him. His DNA art was also transformed into a birthday cake thanks to our digital download feature.

How was Steve Wozniak’s DNA Portrait created? DNA 11 extracted his DNA from a simple cheek swab, then ran it through a gel and a process called electrophoresis in our lab. Smaller pieces of DNA move faster than larger pieces through the gel pores, so the result is a series of DNA strands separated from one another based on size, with the largest strands on the top of the gel and the smallest bands at the bottom. This process ensures the unique DNA extends into a unique order.

Fusion-io, where Woz is chief scientist, planned the surprise party. Guests secretly invited to the museum received pink boas, noise makers and a chance to test their skills on Tetris.

It was a real honor to create his portrait. Happy Birthday, Woz!

Wii Fit Girl
Tosh.0 Videos Daniel Tosh Web Redemption

Here’s a random clip from the past.

You may remember the Wii Fit Girl from a while back. Well she did an interview on Tosh.0 and we caught a glimpse of something while watching the re-run a few nights ago. Check out the awesome artwork she has on her wall.

We really dig the metal frame!

EDIT: If you’re in Canada you can view the clip here:

If you follow our Facebook or Twitter accounts you may have already heard (we’re pretty excited), but if not the above video says it all…we were on Conan last night!

DNA 11 has received a lot of high profile attention in the media but it’s always extra awesome when it’s someone like Conan who we’re all HUGE fans of around here.

Conan’s guest on the show was Elijah Wood, a great friend of DNA 11, and the topic of his DNA portrait came up.

While we can assure everyone that Elijah is an original, we can’t vouch for Conan (maybe NBC really did get him).

If that doesn’t make sense, watch the full interview clip here:

We’re with CoCo!

Unplggd DNA11 Review

Apartment Therapy’s technology-focused sub-brand Unplggd has a great review of the DNA Ancestry Portrait on their blog today.

Blogger Joelle Alcaidinho, whose family didn’t have great ancestry records, found out a lot about her maternal lineage through DNA 11’s DNA Ancestry Portrait, and has a pretty cool piece of art to show off in the process.

If you are looking for a piece of art that is unique and a bit geeky, the Ancestry Portrait is just the thing.

The DNA Ancestry Portrait received a Strong Recommend rating in the review which continues the momentum that this ground-breaking product is having on the overlapping worlds of art, design, science and technology.

KISS Portrait - Perfect V-Day Gift

We think DNA 11 KISS Portraits are a pretty awesome personalized gift for Valentine’s Day but it always helps when others think so too.

Which is why the timing of Rachel Zoe’s Style Your Space: 20 Posh Home Accessories feature is impeccable.

Rachel loves the KISS Portrait as a Valentine’s Day gift idea:

“Art should be personal, which is exactly what DNA 11 does by turning your kisses into wall portraits!”

We think so too Rachel, KISS Portraits are not only stylish and personalized but because the collection kit features M.A.C VIVA GLAM Lipstick, a portion of every one sold will go towards the M·A·C Aids fund.

Some love for you and a little love for others, what a great Valentine’s idea.
