Light Switch / Light Switch

Light Switch

We always forget to turn off the light when we walked out of the room. This bad habit would really waste our energy and money. As a result, I decided to design a switch which has the function of countdown and turning off the light by itself. This switch can help us to save more energy and money. Just touch the center of the switch, and the light will turn for 10 seconds. If you need more time, and you can drag out the circle, you will see how much time you get below the circle. The switch will start to countdown and the circle will lessen gradually. Finally, the light will turn off by itself.
