Piezoelectric Dance Floor

Created on 24 Oct 2018

A dance floor that lights up based on the kinetic energy from dancing

We will build a dance floor lights up from kinetic energy harvested from people dancing. Dancers power how lit the party is! Photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jasoneppink/2781498435
