This time lapse of fireflies is art in motion

If you've been stressing out or if you're getting swamped at work or if you're feeling a little overwhelmed, here's how you fix it: by watching this lovely time lapse of fireflies by Vincent Brady. Just put it on full screen, zone out and watch fireflies (or lightning bugs if that's what you call them) paint the world… » 3/26/14 10:48pm 3/26/14 10:48pm

This Light Is Powered By Fireflies And Doesn't Need Electricity to Glow

Can you imagine light that can glow without using electricity? That's what these researchers from Syracuse University are trying to create and they're using the bioluminescence of a firefly to make it happen. It means that perhaps sometime in the future, these firefly lights could replace LEDs and not need any power. » 6/15/12 5:40pm 6/15/12 5:40pm

Autonomous DIY Fireflies Make Order From Blinking Chaos

Start a swarm of these DIY Firefly » 8/13/08 4:40pm 8/13/08 4:40pm LEDs a-blinking, and they'll create a random pattern and blink an angry red. But after a few minutes, thanks to some clever microcontroller code and a light sensor, they'll soon all be blinking in sync with a nice, calming blue color. It's a neat bit of DIY electronics that's elegant…
