    Tired of flavours available for ice cream such as chocolate-chip cookie or

    Mocha almond fudge, how does bioluminescent jellyfish ice cream sound to

    you? Ice cream entrepreneur Charlie Harry Francis, of the United Kingdom

    has developed the first-ever ice cream that glows in the dark. It was

    developed using a protein that gives the jellyfish its bioluminescence.

    Francis describes it: We have managed to synthesise a protein extracted

    from jellyfish that causes to occur. Were using a specific form of this protein

    which reacts with calcium at a neutral PH, causing the protein to glow when

    it comes into contact with calcium.

    Remarkably, the ice cream also lights up when licked. The company plans to

    market the ice cream worldwide soon.

    Tuntutan kehidupan yang lebih

    kompleks dalam abad ke-21

    memerlukan kita mempunyai

    pemikiran yang kritis, kreatif dan

    inovatif kerana kebanyakan keperluan

    harian telah diautomasikan yang

    membuat kita kurang berfikir dan


    Tambahan lagi akses kepada Internet

    telah membuat kita hidup tanpa

    sempadan di mana maklumat dapat

    dicapai pada bila-bila masa dan
