New services and DIY Technology can now accurately produce the physical appearance of anyone from DNA discarded on streets or in the trash.
Forensic DNA analysis is now in the hands of average people, you no longer need to wait for police support. Services are being offered to either run the tests for you directly or sell you the equipment to do it yourself. DNA can produce a detailed image that includes eye, skin, and hair color, face morphology, propensity for obesity, hair curl, freckles, gender, ancestry and many more traits. It is now possible to “reverse-engineer” DNA into a physical profile at home.
DNA can be recovered from discarded items, such as hair, cigarettes and chewing gum. People can use DNA with face-generating software and 3D printers to create 3D portraits.
