Photoaday124: Oscillatoria spp.  This is a genus of filamentous cyanobacteria.  Each filament has a trichome which oscillates at its tip, hence the name oscillatoria.  I sense the folks at Ikea were drawing from this type of nature when they made this and a bunch of their lighting products.  More on that later though…Speaking of that though, this group is photosynthetic.  They actually contribute to an estimated 20-30% of Earth’s photosynthetic production.  That’s a lot of energy.  Shame we can’t generate some kind of bio-electricity through their use.
