Newest most environmentally friendly power source....

Postby joelamosobadiah » Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:28 am

......electric eels.

Surely if they can power a Christmas tree, then a couple could power a whole house, right? :-B

KAKAMIGAHARA, Gifu -- An aquarium filled with exotic fish here is using an electric eel to power lights on a Christmas tree.

Each time the electric eel at the Aqua Toto Gifu aquarium touches a copper wire in its tank, it sends power that lights up globes decking a Christmas tree.

Officials expect the "eel Christmas tree" to be a popular attraction for dating couples in the lead-up to Christmas Day, when the tree will be removed.

Electric eels are capable of generating electricity in their bodies. They have notoriously poor eyesight and use electric shocks to stun prey so they can catch and eat them.

Right in the heart of Japan. It's a state, like Minny or Nebraska. Only they call them prefectures, not states.

That's pretty cool. Not that it would actually be a practical use for energy, but pretty neat nonetheless. Animal rights people will be all over this soon enough I'm sure. !+)

Not, in Japan. I feel like they don't have as many complainers and activists there. :-?
