Living camera uses bacteria to capture image… of FSM

Living film used to create an image of
the “flying spaghetti monster”

A dense bed of light-sensitive bacteria has been developed as a unique kind of photographic film. The “living camera” uses light to switch on genes in a genetically modified bacterium that then cause an image-recording chemical to darken, thus a monochrome image could be permanently “printed” on a dense bed of the modified E. Coli.

There are no plans to make the biocamera available in shops, although I think there could
well be a huge demand for bacteria displaying FSM and Jesus images on eBay…
