I haven't experienced the energy saving dance floor-yet.  I also love the people powered sidewalks.  Toulouse, France tested them out a few years ago to power the streest lights but I haven't seen any news or results since.

Follow up on real-world applications for these amazing new technologies would be great!

Nice slideshow Rich. Love the huggable car from Phoenix Contact. I also like the energy-grabbing dancefloor. How many times have you heard people say "I wish we could bottle that energy" when they're watching active young people. With this dancefloor, now it's possible.

This was quite amusing. I hope they weren't mocking environmental friendly cars with this because that would be so wrong. It might as well have been something to raise awareness, though I don't get the point of using a Beetle for this.
