Dutch electronics company Phillips has. In fact, they've created Bio-light, a greener lighting system that's part of their Microbial Home (MH) system. It isn't powered by electricity or sunlight, but by glowing bioluminescent bacteria that thrive on waste generated in the average home.

The bioluminescent bacteria is housed in hand-blown glass cells, clustered together to form a lamp that could easily be displayed in a modern art museum. Each cell is connected to the lamp's reservoir base by thin silicon tubes that pipe methane gas from composted bathroom solids and vegetable scraps via a kitchen dodad that digests bio-waste.

Interesting.. maybe we can also fans/ventilations powered by poo, this way when SHTF they would
still be working fine

Yeah, poo is amazing. I'm using it to sustain the ecosystem in my future aquaponics setup.

The duckweed feed on poo, and this feeds the fish. The fish poo out what the plants need, and the plants filter the water back to the fish.

This shows another wonder of poo, so S+F.

That's neat.. what kind of fish eat duckweed? Koi? Goldfish?

I have it floating on the top of my tropical fish tanks at home!

Tilapia grow great on a half and half mix of duckweed and commercial feed.

In a farm trial conducted in the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Agricultural Pilot Center (BFAR-APC) fishfarm in Iguig, Cagayan, researchers found out that tilapia fed with a diet consisting of 50 percent fresh duckweeds and 50 percent commercial feeds had higher growth rate than those fed with commercial feeds only. Each fish weighed about 171 grams in five to six months culture period. The feed conversion ratio was 1.65, meaning that for every kilo of tilapia, 1.65 kilo of the feed combination is needed.
