Mind Lighter / Lighting

Mind Lighter

In many distant poverty-stricken areas, there is no access to electricity. During the night, a great many children have to do homework under poor light, which is harmful for their eyesight and study over time.
Mind Lighter is a self-powered pen cap which can give out light. The power comes from the work generated by writing. In the night, children can turn on the mini LED on the Mind Lighter to get enough luminance for reading and writing.
