Tis the season to be jolly. And if you’re sick to the back teeth of Christmas, Greenbang is willing to bet it’s got the story to put the magic back into December 25th.
An eel powered Christmas tree. Oh yes. A Christmas tree using the energy generated from a tank of electric eels to power its lights.
The Mainichi Times says:
Each time the electric eel at the Aqua Toto Gifu aquarium touches a copper wire in its tank, it sends power that lights up globes decking a Christmas tree. Officials expect the “eel Christmas tree” to be a popular attraction for dating couples in the lead-up to Christmas Day, when the tree will be removed.
