QuotLiving Furniturequot

Tapping into being energy efficient and making the world a greener place, the "living furniture" idea is researched and led by Dr. James Moultrie of Cambridge University`s Institute for Manufacturing. Energy is generated from the moss and stored into a battery for later uses at night.

"During the process of photosynthesis, the moss releases organic compounds into the soil, which contains bacteria. The bacteria then break down these organic compounds, which they need to survive, liberating a bi-product that includes electrons. These electrons are captured by conductive fibers inside the Moss Table and put to use. The technology therefore harnesses energy which would otherwise be wasted." (For those who wants to know the process without reading the whole article)
