iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

In Africa, some regions lack access to a stable electricity supply, so that many students can't study at night. Jumpforlight is a product that can be used as a toy to play rope skipping and to illuminate. It charges and stores electrical energy from the kinetic energy of the rope's rotation. The light is activated when two magnets that are located at the bottom of the product attract and connect. This is also a collaborative educational product that teaches students to share with others and grow together.

An innovative application of kinetic energy. Good design that combines commitment, feasibility, usability, and community.
