Design should show in a cartoon format a Robotic Hand using an Abacus.
Ideal design will be able to connect this conceptual image /cartoon with biology.
This picture is meant to highlight an absurdity / conundrum in a current approach in biotechnology. Specifically, there is a lot of sophistication in some parts (in the Arm ~ Biological techniques), but the management of the sample / fluid is very primitive (Abacus ~ multi-well plate).
Example of multi-well plate and pipette tip and included with supplementary files. There are several pictures that show robots of various sophistication that do pipetting.
This is an inefficient method of using biology. The limitation is in the pipetting or "sample handling".
Abacus with child illustrates how naïve and childish is the approach of using an abacus. This image convey some of the spirit of the message of this Cartoon.
