Luminous Spade / Spade

Luminous Spade
Luminous Spade

Luminous spade is a new spade that could achieve the function of lighting depending on the energy conversion. The handle portion is translucent LED lighting fixture, which could generate electricity through the energy generated by the motion of the spade. In the poor lighting environment, this could guarantee the basic lighting of constructions; find the storage location of the spade at anytime and anywhere; remove the luminescent lighting handle to be as individual lighting instruments; and also make the spade become an alerted tool. This is low carbon environmental protection and energy conservation.
