Some mad scientist type has made an ultralimited-edition batch of ice cream that glows in the dark, thanks to the magic of bioluminescent proteins that are activated by the presence of calcium. Because of biochemistry, it turns out the frozen stuff gets brighter as it’s licked, too. The bad news is that scoops would cost $225 a pop if this stuff ever went into production. The good news is now there’s finally a dessert worthy of following those $325,000 hamburgers grown from stem cells in a lab. [Gizmodo, Related]
