Dance To Save the World!

I was watching the tube with my folks in Anaheim earlier and ANC had a segment on an Eco-Club in North London. I was a bit confused with the whole concept and thought what could they possibly be doing to save the world?

The club uses biodegradable cups to serve their organic drinks. And get this, the club can be (60%) powered by the dancers on the dance floor! According to an article posted on MSNBC:

The dance floor uses the concept of piezoelectricity, where crystals and ceramics create a charge to generate electricity.

“We estimate that if you had loads of clubbers dancing vigorously it would provide 60 percent of the club’s energy needs,” said Charalambous. (the developer)

I’ve never been into the whole club scene but I’d dance to save the planet!

We supposedly have (only) 100 months to save it!
