This caught my eye (and reminded me of the pavements that generated electricity), glowing plants that could be used to create sustainable natural lighting. Clever.

The people behind it were looking for $65,000 on Kickstarter to help fund their project. They raised $484,013. Those that backed them on Kickstarter are going to be getting seeds to plant their own glowing plants. How cool is that? Back them up to $90 and you’d have received a book on how to grow your own glowing plant!

Good stuff – and if, one day, street lamps are replaced by glowing plants and trees I think that would be great. A little creepy. But great.
