luci’ – an inflatable solar powered lantern by mpowerd

 

 

developed in america by MPOWERD, ‘luci’, the inflatable solar powered lantern was conceived to empower the developing world, providing greater equity to those without access to electricity. weighing only 3.8 ounces, luci incorporates the functions of a task light, flash light and diffused lantern and is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery – most importantly, it retains its charge forup to three months.

 

shown at the 2013 CES in las vegas, the lamp was designed to be lightweight and collapsible for travel, becoming durable and reliable in the most extreme weather conditions and can easily be attached to a wall or ceiling. independent from the power grid, the lantern is ideal for situations where light is inaccessible or unaffordable, making it a clean, low-cost, sustainable energy provider.

  • I think it’s a good project even if the concept is already existing. This one is more appropriate for children, the size, the fact to pump up, and the cost of manufacturing. I hope it’s recycled plastic 😉

  • A similar design concept was created by Jesper Jonsson two years ago. Check out http://bit.ly/ZFuNzc . The design by Jesper Jonsson is much more good looking and compact.
