Hypnos / Daily necessities design


In Taiwan, accidental falls are the second leading cause of death in elderly accidents, second only to traffic accidents. The danger of walking at home at night is often underestimated.
Hypnos is a night light designed to improve the safety of walking at night. The detachable design also provides the light source needed for walking at night.
Just clap your hands to wake Hypnos from sleep mode. The detachable core can switch between wide area mode and flashlight mode to adapt to various situations. Magnetic charging is adopted, which reduces the difficulty of use and allows the core to operate independently for several hours.
