Afterglow / Eco friendly lamp


We often fall asleep at night forgetting to turn off our lights. This is a huge waste of energy and only one that can be rectified after hours of sleep when the user awakes.

This ‘Afterglow’ will contribute to solving the energy issues through the fluorescent material. you can control the time mode as much as turn right the top cover, when time is up it will be automatically turn off. Then, it saves the energy from the light source into the inner part which can run without electricity.

The aim of this project is to collect the energy from an electric device and preserve it into a lamp that lasts for as long as you used the original light.
