A Lamp That Use Human Blood As Fuel

               An American designer named Mike Thompson has developed a lamp which runs on human blood. Much like the strange fuel source, the procedure for lighting the lamp is also out of the ordinary. To set it aglow, one has to break the top of the lamp off, cut oneself with jagged glass and let the blood pour inside it. The blood then  reacts with chemical inside, and sets the lamp alight.
              According to the designer, the lamp is an attempt to make people aware of ills of using too much energy. He says that when one uses this lamp, one is bound to ask him/herself the question: what if power came at a cost to the individual? He insists that just as losing too much blood can put one's life in danger, using too much energy can put the environment at risk.
