Dance Floor in Britain Will Provide The Electricity To Power The Club

Dance Your Way to Solving the Energy Crisis!

What if you could pop-and-lock your way to a greener future? A nightclub in Britain, that's opening in July, is installing a dance floor that will generate the electricity to power the club! As people dance, the floor bounces slightly, pushing on blocks that power the current for constantly recharging batteries. The batteries then run to provide energy to parts of the club, like the lights and audio. I would totally shake my thang for the Earth!

If only they could just figure out a way to use the power generated by my DDR usage. . .

fantastic. i wonder how much that cost. im going to school for architectural engineering and want to specialize in environmental; something like this, if its cost efficient enough, would be great for clubs and stuff where a lot of people walk and move.

That's a pretty effin cool idea. Does it power the whole club? Because audio gear eats up power like crazy. Still, even if it only generates power for the lights, that's a big step in the right direction.
