Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde is trying to replace streetlights with glow-in-the-dark trees using “the bio-luminescent qualities of jellyfish and mushrooms.” The glowing plants are created by “splicing DNA from luminescent marine bacteria to the chloroplast genome of a common houseplant, so the stem and leaves emit a faint light similar to that produced by fireflies and jellyfish.”
this would be so gnarly
"The Creatures from the Inter-Dimension"
Hidden between what we know of time and space,
Live glowing blobs of energy without a discernible face
No one knows their motives, or the source of their power
But they seem to enjoy finding new children to devour.
The boy peeks through his fingers, and is blinded by their light
Perhaps if he hadn’t opened his eyes, he’d’ve survived the night
For if you ever gaze at these creatures, your time is up
And they slurp up your soul like sipping juice from a cup.
So be sure to stay under the blankie, your eyelids tightly closed
When the Creatures come to absorb you, you must stay composed.
Never look at them directly, and they’ll eventually go away
And you’ll get to survive… for at least one more day.
