Glowee Bioluminescent Light Shells
on 31 March 2016
A French start-up called Glowee has created an alternative light source that could possibly change the way we illuminate the night. Using bioluminescent bacteria found inside the Hawaiian bobtail squid, the company creates transparent, glowing shells that can be placed virtually anywhere that needs light. According to Glowee, it would reduce damaging environmental effects by introducing more natural and sustainable light—and since it does not require electricity, it’s completely independent of outside energy sources.
