Tokyo testing electricity generating floors
This is totally new way of energy creation by harnessing human power in everyday movement and could be the future solution of solving energy problems. Placed outside of Shibuya station, the tiles invite passer-by to step, jump and also walk across them. The result is transferring of power from the user to the tiles which in turn power the nearby Christmas lights. This is currently a small scale experiment and it is a test for both the creators and also a learning experience for the young Japanese. The concept of the course is to harness the energy humans expand on a daily basis and turn it into useful energy to power our lives.
