Flies are amazing

"This video shows a clock that eats flies. The Flypaper Clock designed by James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau gets all the power it needs to run from the flies it digests. The Flypaper Clock traps flies on a sheet of flypaper that revolves around two rollers. The captured flies are deposited into a vat of bacteria, which generates electricity from a chemical reaction to keep the LCD clock going."

Very cool! Obviously not such a good idea for Dunedin in winter without any flies - but moths perhaps? and another to power the light to attract the moths...and another to attract the ones needed to run that one...
