Ant Farm Revolution is a creative ant farm designed to let users ant-watch from a distance. Ant Farm Revolution's unique design incorporates a light that shines through the farm and displays an enlarged image of the ants on one's ceiling or wall.

You might have noticed the green goop that fills the inside of the Ant Farm Revolution. The goop is actually a mixture of seaweed extracts, water, amino acids and sugar; it provides the ants with food and water and can also be easily tunneled through by the little critters. The farm's LED lamp is powered by three AAA batteries and casts a sizable image wherever it is pointed.

Even in today's increasingly high-tech world, it's great to see there is still an interest in the less-obvious creatures of the earth. Stats for Luminescent Insect Farms Trending: Older & Chilly
