Bioluminescent Algae Demo – Thursday, 23 Feb, 2012 @ 7pm

Biolesce is an art project exploring bioluminescent dinoflagellates through physical computing.  The dinoflagellates emit light when physically agitated (moved). We will discuss this work-in-progress, the various configurations tried out thus far, and a demonstration of a simple arrangement of motors and dinoflagellates.

    sweet! Wish I were in town this week. Lots of recent discussion of dinoflagellate growth media on the DIYbio boston list lately.

  2. Stephen Young says:

    If you expose them to light, do they move? I.e., is it a reversible process?

    Can I bring a small spectrometer to check their emitted wavelengths or has it been done already?
