Firefly / key


Opening lock is difficult in darkness without light. The luminous keys are designed for this problem. There is a luminous coating at the metal handles of key for easier finding the key hole by fluorescence during night. The luminous coating is the photoinduced energy-stored noctilucence, which could store the luminous energy after being shined by light source so as to provide simple lighting after stopping the shining of light by fluorescence during night.
