Humans generating electricity

People making electricity on a dance floor at the Australian Museum in the Climate change: our future, our choice exhibition.

The energy from human movement can be captured and converted into an electrical current. Some gyms and dance clubs are already collecting human energy and using it to power their lights and music. On a much larger scale, we may soon be able to harness the power from crowds at concerts, train stations and sporting events.
