Designer develops mud-powered lamp

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , , | Posted on Monday, March 16, 2009

Dutch designer Marieke Staps has invented a lamp that runs on mud. Yes, mud.

The environmentally friendly 'Soil Lamp' makes use of the chemical reaction between copper, zinc, and slightly moistened mud to produce enough electricity to keep an LED lamp burning.

In order to keep the lamp running, it will only need a splash of water every now and then.

This innovative invention and technique offers a wealth of possibilities for producing 'eco-friendly' electricity in the future.
