Algae Dino Pet Doubles As A Night Light [Pics]
The interactive toy photosynthesizes during the day and glows at night, aiming to present biology in a fun way and teach kids about nature.
Yonder Biology’s ‘Dino Pet‘ is a fun and renewable toy that photosynthesizes during the day and glows at night. The “new kind of pet” requires indirect sunlight and then gives you a great light show when it gets dark.
The company aimed to present biology in a fun way and teach kids about nature by creating an interactive toy. The pet contains ‘dinoflagellates,’ a species of marine algae that emit a blue-green light in response to mechanical agitation (shaking).
