Plants Transformed into Lights

MIT Engineers have experimented with embedding a firefly enzyme into the leaves of a plant to make it produce light. So far they have seen success despite at this stage only low light levels having been achieved which eventually wear off. However this is still an incredible innovation and they are continuing to work to optimise the light production, hoping to increase the brightness, extend its effects, and having the plant respond to sunlight and ‘switch off’.


Can you imagine the day where your bedside lamp is not a lamp, but instead a pot plant?
