This Christmas tree lights powered by brussel sprouts [Science]
posted November 28 2013 4:36.17 by spic0m




It's the vegetable that kids the length and breadth of the country do their best to avoid on Christmas Day, so they're bound to approve of sprouts being served up as an alternative power source for tree lights instead of being served up on their dinner plates.

One thousand of the raw vegetables have been used by scientists from The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair to create the unusual battery for the decorations.

It is the world's first Christmas tree to be powered by these vegetables and it's been placed on London's Southbank area - a sight that'll give sprout-haters everywhere a warm glow.
