Light Pinwheel

In the backward areas of the world, lacking of materials and energy is a major factor of affecting peoples’ lives. That results in that the children could not obtain the ideal toys, and lighting at night is also a big problem. Light pinwheel combines the windmills and lighting. When the stored windmill rotates, the kinetic energy is generated, and is converted into electrical energy effectively. That could meet a variety of needs of lighting at night. The design could not only provide interesting toys for children, but also bring light and hope in the dark night. This is simply and practical, and riches life.
