About the product
  • The DinoSphere is living, filled with thousands of non-toxic marine algae
  • Bioluminescent dinoflagellates will emit natural blue light at night when swirled in the dark
  • A 10cm clear glass semi-sphere with a flat bottom and small hole on top
  • A coupon code to redeem on the BioPop website for the dinoflagellates and nutrients. These components will be shipped fresh to you from BioPop at no additional cost.

Product Description

The DinoSphere is a living, glowing orb. The sphere contains thousands of tiny single cell algae called dinoflagellates. These "dinos" use light to grow and produce a soothing blue light when swirled at night. Now you can enjoy the beauty of natural bioluminescence from the comfort of your own home. Rather than send living organisms that may not be opened right away, your order comes with a redeemable coupon in place of the living dinos and Dino Nutrients. When ready, you can redeem the code on the BioPop website and the living dinos and nutrients will be shipped to you directly at no additional cost.

From the Manufacturer


Connect with the Sea

The Ocean is the origin of all life. And it continues to provide. Did you know that over 50% of the air we breathe is generated by the vast amounts of plant plankton in the Ocean, plant plankton like the dinoflagellates in the DinoSphere. Through a process called photosynthesis these little buggers crank out Oxygen (O2) while consuming harmful Carbon dioxide (CO2). And you can have both these healthy benefits in your home or office.

Natural and Interactive

No - not like your phone.. The DinoSphere contains totally natural dinoflagellates (tiny marine algae) in a custom hand-blown glass vessel. Remember that glass is made from melted sand thus we have combined sand and sea, light and life, air and water to create the DinoSphere. The DinoSphere does not produce light during the daytime. It is too busy collecting the light it needs to survive. Only at night (during night-time hours) will the DinoSphere produce natural light (bioluminescence) when it is gently swirled.


Natural Light at Night

Every night after dark you will be able to enjoy the soft natural blue light produced in earnest by thousands of tiny marine algae.

Easy Care - Like a Plant

During the day just keep your DinoSphere in a moderately lighted room (out of direct sunlight) while it is scrubbing the air converting global warming CO2 to life giving Oxygen.

Uses light to recharge - not electricity

The DinoSphere never runs out of batteries or butt dials your mom when you are at a party. Light (either refracted sunlight or artificial room light) will power your DinoSphere for nights to come.

About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Smart Natural Light

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

While trying to create a functional living 'BioLight' from dinoflagellates the Founders of BioPop realized that the Dino cultures they were working with were more than pools of single cell algae. 'The more we played with these guys more connected we became with them'. Friends and family joined in this aquatic connection and soon they were sharing their Dino friends with everyone around them. Children were fascinated, adults wanted to learn more about them, kids thought they were cool. Even some old people got it.

What makes your product special?

Sorry if you have not figured this out by now it is time for more cat videos on you tube.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?
