From a generator dance floor to a non- staples stapler, meet some of the most unusual yet cool ideas to go greener.

Teaching the importance of energy conservation is the goal of this design from Tim Holley. He calls it Tio, and it's a ghost-shaped light switch that gives kids a visual reminder of how much energy they've used by leaving lights on.
