A single living cell has been coaxed into producing laser light, researchers report in Nature Photonics.

Great. So jellyfish not only live forever, reproduce in vast quantities, possess some of the most deadly venom on the planet but now they've got frickin lazers built into their cells?!

No, the proteins were derived from jellyfish.
