1GreenWaves takes the concept of a concert to the next level by incorporating a piezoelectric dance floor that converts dancing energy into electricity.
2The audience contributes to the energy being used by the concert, and the crowd also will control lighting and special effects.
3Among the highlights of Earth Month was GreenWaves III, an electronic music festival sponsored by E.Co. and the Campus Activities Board.
4When students dance on the piezo dance floor it bends and releases energy into a battery where it is stored and used for lights and sounds.
