Article: Stranger Visions: DNA Collected from Found Objects Synthesized to Create 3D Printed Portraits

This is kinda creepy even to someone like me. 
Having your DNA sequenced (or rather typed) by a stranger to create approximate portraits of you. 
While no sinister intent is present here. It should scare the hell outta the man on the street. (Hopefully the gum spitter and butt thrower variant ) 
No doubt the project does cast human genomics in a bad light ( privacy issues) but I think a watchful public eye is good for publicly funded science.
