Kinetic power has made its move towards being among the many alternative energy producing sources we need of today. And on that note, dance floors are bound to be a great way to contribute to energy-generation, another one aside from the usual track floors and sports fields that have already come out in the open.
The illuminated dance floors make use of LED technology, converting those frisky dance moves into usable electricity. The floor tiles can be carved out in any size with each tile having its own generator that collects and stores energy.
Areas such as the Temple Night Club over in San Francisco have these permanent Energy Floors installed, constantly harvesting energy for their customers.
Each Energy Floor tile creates electricity by moving ever so slightly when stepped on- just 10 mm. That small movement activates the generator, which cranks of up to 35 watts of electricity.
After a night of hard dancing in a packed club, the Energy Floor has the capability of producing enough renewable energy to significantly offset the utilities for the evening. Each dancer can create 5 to 20 watts of energy over the course of an evening.
