Soil Electricity

Student at Design Academy Eindhoven, Marieke Staps
created a lamp powered by soil!

” the metallic strips of zinc and the cornucopia of minerals and organisms in the damp soil chemically react with one another to initiate a constant
electrical current that lights up an LED.”

.
LED’s don’t take up much energy, so hopefully this will be developed further because
this has so much potential!
.
Possibly adobe and earth homes wouldn’t need electrical wiring because you’d stick
your electricals literally into the wall.
.
i wonder if the strip of metals and electrical current have any effect
on the organisms in the soil.?
