Continuing on the horizon of companies creating unique gifts, specifically gifts that are derived from a scientific background, it is important to include Yonder Biology within that group. As a company, Yonder Biology focuses on science and art. The company expanded its interests to "living art--art that can grow, renew itself and respond to stimuli." Known for its DNA art work, Yonder Biology has developed a new product that will present essential opportunities for the younger generation.
Yonder Biology's new design, Dino Pet, is far from an ordinary pet. It is a glow in the dark, live pet. Intrigued yet? As the first bioluminescent, the Dino Pet provides the opportunity for kids to become more familiar with the scientific world around us, while expanding on the attribute of responsibility and learning how to take care of a pet. The main component of the Dino Pet revolves around "the usage of dinoflagellates, which are a species of marine algae that have the ability to bioluminesce in response to mechanical agitation (shaking!)." According to Yonder Biology, "The Dino Pet is fun, renewable, and magical. It's a new kind of pet that photosynthesizes during the day & glows brilliantly at night." Simply, enough exposure to the sun light during the day will keep the Dino Pet alive for about 1-3 months. However, providing it with Dino Food (found on Yonder Biology's website), can extend its life expectancy.
The Dino Pet would make a great gift for kids that have reached the appropriate age to understand its concept. It is a very cool idea, allowing the young mind to become interested in the field of biology, while keeping the process fun. Potentially, Yonder Biology could think about adding a different variety of dinosaurs for the shape of the container. And finally, it would be interesting if they came up with a concept that would allow the Dino Pet to be implemented into fish tanks, so that it is surrounded by other marine species.
Overall, a glowing pet is POP worthy.
