Could Future Cities Be Powered By Bioluminescent Bacteria?
A bold startup points to a post-electricity future for our planet
People associate smart cities with technology but as genetic modification grows in its applications, organic and biological matter could play an increasingly important role as we see a blending of the technological and natural. Additionally, the presence of more green space in urban areas will open new doors for entrepreneurs and urban planners. One startup harnessing these trends is Glowee, a Paris-based group founded by Sandra Rey in a design competition, as their idea leverages synthetic biology in a refreshing manner with numerous implications for urban development.
