Do you still remember the story about the little girl who sold matchbooks, those matches created warmth and light to their dazzling sparks? As Earth faces the many perils of overdevelopment, we have used the old-time method of igniting a lamp through matches as our conceptual interface, to achieve the ubiquitous tactile sensation of striking a match against a matchbox when turning the switch on or off. After you have ignited the light and adjusted to luminance to the desired level, you can achieve maximum results with minimal waste of resources. This way can help you protect the environment while also adding a little spice to your life.
