Playing God - BBC Documentary 2012

"life itself is became a programmable machine" ...

"Broadcast (2012) Adam Rutherford meets a new creature created by American scientists, the spider-goat. It is part goat, part spider, and its milk can be used to create artificial spider's web. It is part of a new field of research, synthetic biology, with a radical aim: to break down nature into spare parts so that we can rebuild it however we please. This technology is already being used to make bio-diesel to power cars. Other researchers are looking at how we might, one day, control human emotions by sending 'biological machines' into our brains."

One of the most amazing documentary I ever see. It's about programming life, Synthetic biology and our next (already here) future.
