“Electric eel is lighting up the holiday decorations”

For five years to encourage ecological sensitivity Enoshima aquarium in Japan has delighted visitors. Definitely, they are taking eco-sensitive to a new level by using an eco-friendly electric eel to illuminate the lights on its holiday tree.
Each time the eel moves, two aluminum panels gather enough electricity to light up the 2-meter (6 ft 6 in) tall white tree in glowing intermittent flashes.  To add to the fun this year, a Santa robot that sings and dances when a visitor steps on a pad.
“As electric eels use their muscles when generating a charge, we also thought to get humans to use their muscles to light up parts of the tree and power Santa.”
Will you see eel energy for domestic use sometime in the future?  I’m told they will work for their food and give you a shocking time.

This takes working together to a new level.
