Sustainable Clubbing

So last night I went clubbing with Henri and Yoshi for Sara’s research on how to keep a party going without drugs.  We went to WATT, that is incidentally the first sustainable dance club. I’m linking to a few videos that talk a little more about it.

Errr… how much power can be emitted? Would say a club floor full of clubbers be enough to power the speakers at least?

One thing bugs me about these pizeoeletric devices: you generate resistance as you compress it. So that tram they talked about would not only have to propel itself, but also against the generation device too. Now if the generation system were actually part of the stabilization system (a la the Prius, which actually uses the resistance to help braking), then that makes sense. Otherwise it’s just causing more energy waste.

So why hasn’t anyone done the obvious and turn the cycles at gyms into generators?
