Turn Your Super Fresh Dance Moves Into Energy With The Sustainable Dance Floor

Make some shapes, generate some electricity.

Let’s say you’re in the club, you’ve got a bottle and it’s full of bud, then you finally get enough of them down you to hit the dance floor and start busting some moves and expending some energy. Don’t you think it’s a bit of a waste that a) the whole world can’t get to see you getting down and b) that energy just goes to waste.

The former issue you’ll just have to resolve by getting your friends to film you and uploading it to YouTube. The latter could be solved by the Sustainable Dance Club (SDC), who make tiles that translate your totally badass moves into energy.

The Sustainable Dance Floor is composed of tiles which each contain a small generator so as you’re burning up the club with your incredible shapes they get converted into electricity, which can then be used to power the visuals or the decks, or the LEDs embedded in the tiles. The concept isn’t new, but you can now buy or rent the tiles from the company—and while they might be a bit cheesy for a club, if you’re redecorating your kitchen and you’ve got money to burn, they’d be so much better than your standard vinyl floor tiles.
