juyi41 / luminous Chinese knot


Luminous Chinese Knot

A LED lighting is added on the front surface of Chinese knot body, and an electronic box containing a small circuit board, a small battery and a switch is installed on the back side of knot body. This design can make the knot emit bright luster, and will not only increase a function of mild lighting effect but also highlight the beauty of knot decoration.
In order to increase the use of time, a CIGS solar cell is mounted and located below the knot body. Even in the house, the solar cell can produce small electricity. By using the solar cell, the operation time will be longer, and the overall shape is also improved.
