Spark Pen

This is a self-generating electric pen through shaking that can light up the writing area, which is suitable for children from mountainous areas. The combination of low cost technology and proper design tackle the problems of electricity difficulty and backward learning environment of children from mountainous areas. The annular LED lamp will be on only by shaking the pen up and down for a while when it generates and stores electricity. It can light up the circle of 15 cm from the pen point, which can meet the reading and writing needs of normal textbooks and exercise books in A4 size. The LED lamp will be off after the pen cap is covered.
