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.?
