Everyone is preparing for Christmas. They’ve already set Christmas trees and decorated it as early as October. Christmas lights and lanterns brighten the streets, turning nights into daylight. Kids even spend huge time playing boxhead 2 as if there’s never an evening to rest.
But of course since its Christmas we tend to ignore the expense we may get after all the happiness we experience from it. We only just get a bit surprised big time like its an age of war between consumers and the electric bill.
That’s why I was so amazed to learn, that there’s a source of free electricity being used in Kamakura, South of Tokyo. They are using an “EEL” as a source of energy. Whoah, that is less blogging for money to pay my bills, if only I can handle an eel like them haha!
Anyway, it is said that every time the eel moves inside the aquarium, there were 2 aluminum panels that gathers electricity, just enough power to power-up Christmas lights of the 2 meter-tall Christmas tree.
“If we could gather all electric eels from all around the world, we would be able to light up an unimaginably giant Christmas tree,” Kazuhiko Minawa told Reuters Television. The Christmas tree is said to provide attraction to many people until December 25.
