Bio Light Concept by Philips

"The new “bio-light” concept by Dutch electronics company Philips , designed as part of their Microbial Home (MH) system, creates light in the same way that bioluminescent living organisms like fireflies and glow worms do. In the bio-light a collection of hand-blown jars — held in place by a steel frame — contain a measure of bioluminescent bacteria which glow green when fed methane gas — in this case through individual silicon tubes routed through a household waste digester. Although the light isn’t bright enough to fully replace conventional lighting, harnessing these biological techniques could help redefine how we consume energy in the home, says Philips."
