Gravity powered lamp for people in developing countries
So every now and again I write about something that’s a little bit off topic from the mobile industry. Something that I feel is pretty remarkable, and should have its whereabots spread far and wide.
“..there ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough, ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting this news to you..baby”
Without further adue, I want to introduce the folks over at GravityLight
GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent. For free.
A realistic alternative to Kerosene lamps.
There are currently over 1.5 billion people in the World who have no reliable access to mains electricity. These people rely, instead, on biomass fuels (mostly kerosene) for lighting once the sun goes down. We propose a sustainable lighting solution powered by gravity.
