I was interested to hear about London’s first eco nightclub, which opened its doors last week. Apparently it’s powered by dancing feet or rather people dancing on the floor generate electricity. What a great idea! Surya (which means Sun God in Sanskrit) has its own wind turbine and solar energy system. In addition the interior furnishings of the club are all derived from waste products, drinks are served in polycarbon cups and revellers can relieve themselves using the latest air flush toilets!

The nightclub is the brainchild of a property developer who has already invested £1million of his own money into the project. He hopes that opening this eco club will inspire and encourage young people to become more involved in saving the planet. Eager to attract the right kind of clientele, the club will be admitting walkers and cyclists for free. Quite right too! In addition, anyone entering the club is expected to sign a petition pledging to do their bit towards saving the planet. Sounds like a great idea to me!

Yes it makes a lot of sense Sandy.

That's a great idea. Maybe we can adopt the technology to use in other public area like train station or school. :) Can walking generate the energy or you have to dance?

Not sure Q family. But I personally think dancing is a lot more fun! Seriously though I'm sure this technology will be adopted in other places in the future. It would be a great idea in train stations. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed your visit here.
