My class is working on a bio-mimicry project. Long story. Recently we've been looking at bio-luminescent light, and specifically what Philips has been exploring. Here's the article if you're curious, but it doesn't have much to do with the question: http://www.design.philips.com/phili...probes/projects/microbial_home/bio_light.page and http://www.popsci.com/technology/ar...-waste-luminous-bacteria-can-light-your-house Now here's the dilemma, we have ideas for this, but nothing has been decided on yet. We don't necessarily have to light up a house with this, but if we could, that would probably draw more eyes. So here's the question, can we make light via this biological process at a central spot and move it through a building to a source of emission in another room while loosing little to no energy? By what means? I feel like this is more a physics question than a biology one. Can anyone help me out?
