Comment: Bigger Weight? (Score 1) 596

by LoneWlf794 (#22488862) Attached to: Gravity Lamp Grabs Green Prize

I think my laptop would require a slightly larger weight to pull this off.
Of course I didn't RTFA, but I assume that as the weight is descending some sort of friction is being produced, which in turn produces your electrical charge. So wouldn't it make sense to have many smaller weights instead of one larger one?
