Bust a move. Let loose. Boogie down. Shake your groove thing. Raise the roof. Rock ‘n’ roll. Get down with your bad self.
Whatever you do, you use a lot of energy on the dance floor, and that energy just seems to be lost and gone forever. But what if that energy could be channeled into something productive, like say, lighting up a dancefloor.
At WATT, a club in Rotterdam, human-made electricity is used to power a show of lights on the dance floor. The Sustainable Dance Floor, is a product made of many electronics, software and lights, and converts rump shaking into electricity, causing quite the light show under your feet. Dancers can see that their energy fuels the floor by a gauge on the wall, measuring energy in 25% intervals. Read more about the floor here.
That’s not the only eco-friendly aspect of this dance club, though. Toilets that use rainwater and harvested heat, in addition to the way cold drinks are stored in the basement tanks to save energy are also ways WATT practices sustainability.
Going out and busting a move and making great memories with friends is something that is very easy to do in Rotterdam. Get out there, have some fun and put those sweet dance moves to work!
