'RMX2010 was developed and marketed by Clonaid, the scientific arm of the Raelian cult. The Raelian cult claims that Clonaid, has created 'Eve', the world's first human clone. Mammals can be cloned by removing the nucleus from an egg cell and replacing it with a nucleus from a normal adult cell. A machine such as the RMX2010, applies a low electrical current to the egg, forcing to accept and fuse with its new contents. The mix-and-match embryo develops into a ball of cells ready for the implantation into the womb.' The Science Museum secured a temporary loan in 2004 of the technology claimed to be responsible.
