Submission + - Genetically Modified Plants To Produce Natural Lighting (singularityhub.com)

kkleiner writes: A team has launched a crowdsourcing campaign to develop sustainable natural lighting by using a genetically modified version of the flowering plant Arabidopsis.

The project, which was recently launched on Kickstarter, has already raised over $100k with over a month left to go.
