Can you imagine electricity can be generated from human beings - Yes, Till today electricity has been generated from mundane, lifeless things like Diesel oil, coal (Thermal Power Plants), from rapid waterfalls (Hydro Power Plants), Wind, Solar power, Nuclear power, Sea Waves etc. But nowadays electricity can be generated even from the small tremors caused by those people walking on Board Walks. It's called Crowd Farming System. This was proved by couple of MIT students – James Graham and Thaddeus Jusczyk. They have invented a chair, which can power a small light bulb if and when somebody sits on it. Actually there's a gym in Honk Kong who have proved this by charging the battery that lights up the gym from the power generated by the cyclists exercising in that gym. They also proudly announce the fact "Powered by You".

Look at the video and see how the youngsters who are enjoying evening beer and happily dancing in the pubs are helping to generate electricity without their knowledge.

Who knows what other changes this technology will bring about in future? God knows!

I don’t know why they haven't done anything with the non stop tremors created by the cars whizzing on the roads.
