The Poo Lantern (seriously)

Has anybody heard of/seen the new lantern in Cambridge? Apparently an MIT Grant funded the project to create a lantern that was to be fueled by dog feces. Now imagine that for a use. Sounds to me like it would be very very smelly. Cool nonetheless, Check it out:

I did not click on the link, and that's disgusting. No kudos for you, my friend.

I could burn dog poo in my back yard, too. Bet that wouldn't make the news.

I think the awesomeness of the Poo light has yet to be determined.
