Ok, so maybe I exaggerated a little bit on the GFP part, but these chairs really do glow! Called AfterGlow, this line of deck chairs from Douglas Homer is made of 100% post-consumer recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE) and glows in the dark.

    GFP = Green Fluoroscent Protein. :) Used extensively in molecular biology to illuminate proteins in tissues and cells. Originates from some kinda jellyfish….I think….

    Indeed, Shelley’s right on target. It was first extracted from a jelly fish scientists like to call Aequorea victoria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aequorea_victoria).
