Life is not easy without light, and this is why mankind has done everything to innovate and use technology to make sure that there is always lighting. But in the middle of progress, pollution also has taken part since it involves the use of artificial energy. The good news is that it's still not too late to think of new ideas to fight the ongoing problem in the environment and still be able to get the light and energy that is needed. Introducing the Algae Bulb Led Light also known as the greenest bulb ever invented. This eco-friendly lightbulb was designed by Gyula Bodonyi. The Algaebulb is an exploration into the use of the organisms on a micro-scale in a single LED lightbulb that harnesses the clean green-power of algae. It is LED bulb with extra air pump at the head part. The pump compresses the air into an algae tank that is covered with a hydrophobic material, that keeps the fluid content inside the tank and lets the air flow free. While algae flourishes, it gives off oxygen, which in turn powers the tiny LED inside the light. When the AlgaeBulb is not illuminated, it appears to be a dark green which is a result of the colony of micro-algae living within. When the Algaebulb is illuminated, it gives off a slightly green tinge on the interior, which makes for a green bulb that is green.
You will be glad to know that algae happen to be a great source of natural energy. The Bluegreen Algae can produce up to half of the world’s oxygen, and it just becomes more amazing that it can also produce light. When you combine the technology of a small air pump compressor, tank, and hydrophobic material, this can already produce enough energy to light a LED bulb for a certain period. Its capacity to produce light is still limited, but it’s enough for us to save energy and even money on electric bills.

You are probably wondering how this amazing invention works, its pretty simple. The bulb is first created out of the following materials to include an air pump, LED, hydrophobic container, PC shell, and air outlet. The structure will take in carbon dioxide and water through the pump that is near the E-27 screw-top. Once air has made its way through the bulb, chlorella pyrenoidosa spirulina microalgae are stimulated. And when the algae bloom, oxygen will be given off by it that eventually would power the small LED that’s inside it. This is the process of how algae could be used as a light bulb. It is possible to change the world one step at a time, and with amazing inventions such as the Algaebulb, it gives hope for the future.
Algae is already being used as a large-scale power source for housing heating/cooling, and in biodiesel creation, when used as a natural energy source it is one of the more exciting alternatives of the near future. The AlgaeBulb is the exploration into the use of the organisms on a micro-scale in a single LED lightbulb that harnesses the green-power of algae.
