This Communication Device Helps You Interact with Fireflies

For those with entomological interests, this communication device termed the 'Firefly Communicator' allows you to communicate with fireflies and see them up close.

The firefly is known for its ability to create blinking flashes of light, but what some may not know is that this is a form of communication and attraction for them. The Firefly Communicator has these patterns of light already stored within it and emits those light pulses, essentially copying the same flashing signals that fireflies send to one another.

The result will hopefully be that these artificial mating and communication patterns inspired by those used by fireflies will allow researchers and people to study these insects in a manner slightly more sophisticated than chasing them around with a jar.
