Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern
For most of us, turning the light on is as easy as a click of a switch. But that’s not the reality for everyone. In several countries, access to electricity is extremely difficult, so people make use of candles and kerosene lamps, which besides being impractical, are dangerous, especially in homes with vulnerable structures.
US company MPOWERD created Luci, an inflatable lamp that works only on solar energy ‘with the goal of making an affordable clean energy product that people could use in any situation.’ Just leave it for 8 hours in the sun and the lamp will operate for up to 12 hours even underwater.
