Organic Bio Displays?

You know Science has come far when scientist are tampering with Bio-organisms in order to create displays with them.  What will they do next?  So far, they’ve created flashing Bio-organisms that flash light on a monitor display.  Here is an excerpt from the article…

“After the December 2009 ‘Bacteria towing Santa’s wagon‘, this is the ultimate example of life-imitating art. Millions of E. coli bacteria glowing together. Biologists and bioengineers at UC San Diego constructed this remarkable living display by engineering the biological clocks of bacterial cells to fluoresce together like blinking light bulbs. And they synchronized thousands of these blinking bacteria colonies so that millions of them would glow ON and OFF in unison.”
