Tomatoes the new biofuel?

This LED table lamp, by designer Cygalle Shapiro, is powered by the tomatoes sitting next to it. Probably this is not an efficient means of lighting your home (tomatoes take a large amount of energy to grow), but still cool!

They might also be the perfect thing to power your vegetable synth. [via inhabitat]

    someone can’t come up with a way to make them taste good. The only thing tomatoes are good for these days is throwing.
