Glowing Plant Releases Maker Kit, Enabling Anyone to Make a Glowing Plant at Home
Date:5/23/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

The maker community is a contemporary group of do-it-yourselfers who encourage all types of inventions. They focus on learning practical skills while applying them creatively and we’re now noticing this community gravitate toward bringing their ideas to life via crowdfunding. A subgroup within that community, the DIY Biology Movement, works on making projects using biology. Glowing Plant has worked for months on sequencing the DNA of plants to make them glow with bioluminescence genes, and has now pursued crowdfunding to raise the funds necessary to print the DNA and transform it into the target plant.

The Glowing Plant team is bringing their knowledge of applied science and genetics to the masses, and has developed a Maker Kit that allows anyone to make their own glowing plant at home. They showed off the Maker Kit at Bay Area’s Maker Faire last weekend with other like-minded makers and DIYers. The Maker Kit can be found on Glowing Plant’s Kickstarter page, and includes a copy of the Glowing Plant book, a full set of instructions and all the ingredients needed to transform a plant at home.

Within just three days of Glowing Plants’ six week crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, the project had reached its funding goal of $65,000. But Glowing Plants’ success did not end there; just a couple weeks later, the campaign had raised $300,000 and is currently sitting at almost $400,000 with just over two weeks remaining in the campaign.

“We’ve been so thankful that the Kickstarter community has been so supportive of our project and we’re constantly thinking of ways to show them our appreciation,” says Antony Evans, Co-Founder of the Glowing Plant Kickstarter project. “Because we reached our goal so quickly, everyone who supported our campaign at the $40 reward level and up will receive seeds to grow the
