How can we …
apply biomimicry techniques to light production?
#12 – Responsible consumption & production
#13 – Climate action
Bioluminiscence (a form of chemoluminiscence) is the production and emission of light by a living organism. Bioluminescence is most common amongst marine organism, but also occurs in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria and probably most known in insects such as fireflies. This light can be bacteriogenic, produced by symbiotic organisms or autogenic, produced by the animals themselves.
What has been done already?
Recent start-ups like Glowee (https://www.glowee.eu/) are interesting examples of bioluminiscence’s possibilities in industrial design and new domains.
