Sea Creature Lighting
The Amazing Jellyfish Lamp Glows in the Dark

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Mar 17, 12

There are a slew of light fixtures on the market inspired by jellyfish, but the Amazing Jellyfish Lamp is the only one that has actually been made using the dead bodies of these sea creatures. Before animal rights activists start putting together a protest, the creators did not kill the jellyfish to make their lamps. Instead, they waited for them to die of natural causes.

Once dead, the sea jellies are frozen in liquid nitrogen and then dipped into an epoxy mixture that hardens into the finished Amazing Jellyfish Lamp. Transparent and indestructible, people can enjoy the soft light emitted from their skin since it still contains the bio-luminescent proteins that makes them glow in the dark. The Amazing Jellyfish Lamp simply needs to be exposed to light during the day in order to work at night.
