Mike Thompson introduced the Latro Lamp, the so called Eco-friendly lamp because its main power source is Algae. Yes, you it’s algae the living thing that power up the lamp residing at the bottom of the jar like lamp.
The energy was extracted from a glass storage of algae because the green plant produces carbon dioxide required by the lamp to light up. Since the algae lives on sunlight, all you have to do is to feed them sunlight everyday and it will produces enough CO2 for the lamp. In case the weather is bad, you can breathe your breath into the Latro Lamp to provide CO2.
Sounds too good to be true, however, let’s hope Mike Thompson can turn this concept into a real thing soon.
