Inversive Switch / switch

Inversive Switch
Inversive Switch

The knob-switch makes a contrary design on the change of lamp’s brightness when compared to the former. When people turn on the lamp, they are used to screwing the switch to get the maximum brightness, which is not the unnecessary brightness in most cases. But they find it turns darken; when they screw back, it’s possible to turn it off, which warn users not wasting energy. Finally the users screw the switch on a middle place to get a proper brightness for work. This is why it can be power saving and environmental friendly.
