GREEN WING / ECO Light for African

GREEN WING
GREEN WING

In certain lesser-developed parts of the African continent, lighting would be regarded as a luxury. When the user makes a fanning motion with the Green Wing in the bright, hot and humid African weather, it stores this kinetic energy to be used later. Furthermore, the Green Wing can amass solar energy through solar-panels on its sides should the user hang it outside in the sun, or bring it around during the day. At night, the LEDs around the fan can be lit up, and the Green Wing can be hung anywhere inside the abode to be used as a source of light.
