Top Lamp

In Africa, most rural areas face the problem of lack of electricity, so that children do not have adequate lighting at night to study. The top lamp can be used not only as a toy for children, but also as a portable lighting appliance for local people. It releases electricity at night by converting the mechanical energy of the spinning top into electricity and storing it. Inspired by spinning top.
