Closed systems kinda do it for me. I was pretty stoked to see that across the pond, sustainability within closed systems is hitting the dance floor---literally. Club4Climate, a party promotion company based in London is pioneering a new way for parties to generate their own energy--through dance.

The Huffington Post posted this diagram that shows how a new dance floor is powering the party and provided added incentive to get out on the floor and shake your money maker. Here's how it works:According to the Huffington Post, the dancing is capable of powering up to 60 percent of the energy needed to have a rager. Rad. Club4Climate also works with clubbers to encourage sustainable behaviors through asking for sustainability pledges and offering discounts to those who demonstrate that they took public transport to get to the party.

Rumor has it that sustainability improvements like this one will hit US clubs soon. See you on the floor.

I really find this amazing!
There are so many options opening up, it will be hard for people not to go green.
 
That is one of the coolest things I've heard in a while. Next level would be figuring out energy generation from air guitar and head banging at rock shows.
 
Here's another one: dance-powered cell phone chargers. Too cool...

I think this is brilliant! What a great idea...
