Big Molecular Toys

Russian molecular models

This team from Moscow, Russia is into making large scale molecular biology stuff as real world object toys, mainly made of plastic, but sometimes they are soft too.

It’s so geeky these days to go and buy yourself a 20 inch highly-detailed swine flu virus molecule or DNA helix made of plush for Valentine’s day or some other date like that instead the boring plush puppy and stuff.

And that is no Death Star but a HIV (AIDS) virus. It looks scary even if plush!

And some cells too..

And this is the special, pink version of Swine Flu virus. It’s probably pink for two reasons – just because pigs are mainly pink or blonde special pink edition?

  1. Instead of giving you chocolate and furry toys this Valentine‚Äôs day I would like to give you every disease possible, how’s that for a change.
