A team of scientists from Syracuse University are using nanotechnology to harness the natural bioluminescence of fireflies in order to create lighting that doesn't need any energy to glow! By using
This July, deep-sea diver Mike Lombardi plans to plunge 1,000 feet below the sea in a newly-designed, high tech “Exosuit” that will take him hundreds of feet deeper than he’s ever been able to dive
Biologists in Puerto Rico are perplexed as the region’s famous Bioluminescent Lagoon has suddenly gone almost dark. The Bioluminescent Lagoon in Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve regularly attracts
Fed up with the likes of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream? An experimental entrepreneur from Bristol (in the UK) has developed a whole range of uniquely flavored ice-cream for adventurous
Technology has come a long way since Edison patented the light bulb back in 1880. A group of undergraduates at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are launching a project to crowdfund the production of
Recently Inhabitat wrote about the Glowing Plant Project, which uses the science of bioluminescence to light up a room using plants. The Kickstarter campaign, created by the team of bio-engineers behind
Why use a light bulb to illuminate your home when you could just fill it with glowing plants? That's the question asked by Antony Evans, the head of a team of bio-engineers in San Francisco, California.
Named after the Japanese Obon Festival, which commemorates the spirit of the dead and is said to guide ancestral spirits home with floating lanterns, Ando's floating poetry also mimics bioluminescent bays
Heliospectra’s new LED lighting system has been chosen by the German Aerospace Center (DRL) as part of the EDEN (Evolution and Design of Environmentally-closed Nutrition sources) research initiative.
Carbon nanotubes have been used in everything from energy-free lights to oil spill clean-up technology, and now a team from Rice University has used them to develop a paint that transforms any surface
Yet another exploration in material - like the recently featured inverted couch in Croatia - Bayou Luminescence gets its name from bioluminescence, which describes the phenomenon whereby a living organism
Bioluminescence is an ability shared by creatures around the planet that allows them to generate light - in fact, 90% of life in the world's oceans possess this characteristic. Whereas most animals use it
Architect and textile designer Marin Sawa's beautiful work explores ways that we can incorporate the production of biofuels within our built environments. With her Algaerium, she has created a series of
It may sound like something cooked up in Frankenstein’s lab, but Joris Laarman has created an incredible living lamp made out of (get this) bioluminescent, living, glowing hamster cells. Called the
