In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

SAVING POWER AND CAN YOU IMAGINE BUILDING A FUCKING TREE HOUSE IN THESE????? LIKE HELLO I’D SLEEP IN THAT SHIT EVERY NIGHT. NEED SOME CHRISTMAS LIGHTS? BUY A REAL GLOW TREE AND NOT A PLASTIC ONE. LOST IN THE WOODS? FOLLOW THE GLOW TREES TO THE PATH. NEED A NIGHTLIGHT FOR YOUR KID? TEACH THEM HOW TO TAKE PROPER CARE OF PLANTS AND BUY A GLOW TREE. EDUCATIONAL AND FUCKING AWESOME. GLOW TREES.

Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
