Jellyfish Aquarium Is the New Lava Lamp

Eat your heart out, Zissou

The perks of being a jellyfish are as vast and endless as the blue waters they inhabit.

They keep it very simple. Go with the flow. Need no friends. And when cooped in an aquarium on your window sill, they make for really killer art.

Which is exactly what a lovely French couple would like to make happen for you via their new Kickstarter. Their company, Darwin Sect, specializes in bell-jar-shaped display cases for insect specimens, and — as of this week — state-of-the-art aquaria for jellfish.

A glass dome sits atop an elegant white stand that also houses the water pump; when lit, the jellyfish’s shadows play on the wall like ghosts.

They have nine days to raise about €10,000.

Let’s make it happen.
