The idea of this streetlight came to me during a visit to the St. Petersburg Zoo, where in the department with insects I saw some insects that were glowing and then I thought it would be great to combine keeping these insects in the better conditions and an creating interesting decoration for the city parks. This is a completely eco-friendly streetlight that does not require electrical energy at all and it is made of fully recyclable plastic. The height of the lantern column is 1.5 meters and the diameter of the luminous ball itself is 400, so at first glance it looks like an ordinary standard lantern. But in fact it glows due to several hundred fireflies (of course, appropriate conditions have been created for them, specifically, a net that allows oxygen to pass through, leaves, moss and food in the form of small snails – all of this is located in the lower compartment of the ball, which is made of darker plastic, and the ball and the column are connected by a compartment on both sides of which there is a fine net that allows oxygen to pass through). The whole streetlight is made of eco-friendly materials: polyethylene terephthalate, high-density polyethylene. This streetlight is fixed with stones. Of course, this device cannot be used as a full-fledged means of lighting, but it would work perfectly as a decor for city parks and a form of keeping fireflies.
