Playlight / light


The product ‘Playlight’ stores physical energy into electrical energy through nano-wire, which generates small electrical charge when crooked. The nano-wire system is already in use and installed in combat boots for the U.S army, which stores electrical power when stepped over. ‘Playlight’ with the nano-wire in it, will be able to capture the kinetic energy produced while kicking and convert it to light. As turning on the switch of this product, the vigor and joy of children will become the source of illumination.
