You’ll never find a pet/toy/friend/lamp quite like the Dino. Pet, because it’s a tiny dinosaur that you keep with you, toy, because of its playful nature (plus dinosaurs are extinct, right?), friend, because of Dino’s playful demeanor and interactive character, and lamp, because this little thing lights up like a wondrous piece of magic at night!
Even though it lights up, Dino doesn’t use any cables, batteries, solar panels, or even bulbs for that matter! The hollow dinosaur basically acts as an aquarium for bioluminescent plankton (or dinoflagellates). When made to move in the dark, they light up like a tiny galaxy within your dino’s stomach, making the most interactive, eco-friendly, unique, and hypnotic light show! The dinoflagellates are living organisms that follow the circadian clock, like humans, sensing when its night time (past sunset). The closer it gets to midnight, the more they shine. All you need to do is care for them by keeping the Dino in moderate lighting during the day so that the plankton charge themselves with nutrients for your night-light-show!
