Submission + - Living Biopixel Display Created From E. Coli (ucsd.edu)

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed an innovative living biopixel display made from E. Coli bacteria. The pulsating fluorescent pixels are made from genetically modified E. Coli bacteria that have been coupled with a fluorescent protein that tunes a whole batch of bacteria to the same bio-cycle. In addition to glowing in unison, the bacteria’s pulsing patterns change with the introduction of certain toxins, like arsenic.
