Pet shop @ Dutch Design Week
Waag Society has a biobank full to bursting with friendly, adorable micro-organisms. During the Dutch Design Week, their microbes were on sale! Bacteria, fungi, molds, yeasts, and algae. You could buy these tiny cuties as micropets and experience the fun reward of caring for these tiny creatures.

Pet shop is not just a way to find reimbursement for costs. Waag Society strives to make biotechnology more accessible to society. Their lab is housed in the tower of one of Amsterdam's medieval buildings and is full of incubators, petri dishes, and microbes. In their Open Wetlab, they (along with artists, hackers, designers, activists and scientists) work to open up biotechnology.
