Greener Clock Powered by Bugs

Bug power is greener power?

U.K.-based designers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau think so. They've designed an LCD clock that's powered by dead bugs. Their clock has a flypaper roller that captures and then scraps the stuck bugs into a fuel cell where they are digested by bacteria, creating enough power to run the clock.

Mr. Auger and Mr. Loizeau have created a handful of other designs that are powered by both bugs and mice. Here's a quick video showing some of their designs in action.

Pure awesome.
