They’re back in style, with a modern twist that will have you clamoring to hang them up in your home. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the beauty of blackout blinds and how far they’ve come. Show Full Text In 1939, Britain enforced a mandatory blackout due to the threat of enemy air strikes. Residents were made to hang thick curtains made of black cotton over their windows at night so that not even a twinkle of light could escape, and even car headlights were to be covered with small shades. The purpose of these dark drapes has now extended far past home safety.

The BioPop Company have come up with a very different and very cool living light/virtual pet by the name of Dino Pet.

Dino Pet: The living lamp that grows brighter the more you care for it

This is a biological lamp that has very small bioluminescent plankton inside it, called dinoflagellates, which glow in the dark with their own inner light. [Image Courtesy of Biopop] This is where the Dino Pet gets its name from, with the dinoflagellates being inside the plastic shell. The plankton are in salt water and they need care, but very little of it, if they are to thrive and provide you with a light show when it gets dark.

In the day the Dino Pet should be placed in indirect light. The amount of light that you get from the Dino Pet will all depend on how well you care for it, or rather, the plankton inside its belly. The BioPop biological lamp/pet/toy was the outcome of the company’s quest for a sustainable bio-light. Via [BioPop] Google+ Lumina twirl™ baton - Flowtoys. Lights: Comes with 2 capsule lights.
