The Latro Lamp is quite possibly the most eco-friendly lamp ever created. This lamp from Mike Thompson is powered by sunlight, breath and water.

How can those three things make light, you ask? The algae in the lamp require CO2 and water to live. Putting the lamp in the sun creates electricity, which can be used to light up dark nights.
