BrighterMoon / Moonlight lighting tool

BrighterMoon
BrighterMoon

The current electricity grid in Africa is underdeveloped, and the lack of light at night hinders children's education. To provide bright light for reading, BrighterMoon uses the bright moonlight in Africa with two concave mirrors made of tin foil. The larger concave mirror focuses the moonlight and reflects it onto the smaller concave mirror, and then the small concave mirror reflects the focused light to provide parallel light bright enough for learning and working.
