Christmas Cheer

Submission + - Crazy Carbon Neutral Christmas Lights (

HyperOgga writes: "This year we decided to do something completely different. Instead of wasting electricity we devised a way to power our Christmas lights with people power! To do this we attached a handle to our front fence which, when wound, generates electricity through a dynamo. Not only is this environmentally friendly but it's interactive and lots of fun. Everyone in our street seems to like it — every evening we get a steady stream of visitors winding it up and watching the lights glow."
