TIME

Need a new reason to love your body, no matter what? Here’s one: It makes an excellent extension cord. Comprised of more than 50% water by weight, it conducts electricity really well. In most real-world situations, that would be totally useless — and potentially deadly, should you get struck by lightening — but now you can use your innate ability to activate battery-powered heaters in an outdoor bus shelter in Montreal.

Here’s how it works: When two or more people step into the shelter, hold hands and press the palm of their free hand against sensors on the walls, an electrical circuit is completed and four ceiling vents release hot air into the glass-enclosed space.

  5. Incredible! What a wonderful find my friend. I love this! Imagine, utilizing our body’s electricity? Wow. And to touch another’s hand to activate it? Sound like a peace AND heat generating device in my opinion! 😉 Reminds me of a study done that even a flicker of a hand-touch elevates feelings, such as when paying or receiving change from a cashier, waiter, etc. Beautiful! Hugs to you Cher. xo Gina

    Aw, well, that is cute, but I have to admit I’d be too shy in the situation to actually use it.
