The the Dutch designer and innovator Daan Roosengaarde has been creating plant that glows. So far only prototypes. But these planets has been genetically modified to include luciferin, a chemical that gives the jellyfish its brilliant glow.

Sure, Roosengaarde’s plants is not near as amazing as the scenery you get to see the movie Avatar but it is well underway.

Roosengaarde imagines illuminating roads around the world. A more eco-friendly and less power consuming choice than traditional lampposts of today.
