Bulnori / Bulnori

Bulnori
Bulnori

The traditional Korean game, 'Jwibulnori' is played with an empty can, in which is punched a hole and then hung by rope. Then something flammable, such as paper or grass, is put in the can which is then swung in a large circle. This is done to prevent harmful insects or mice from destroying the crops and hoping for a rich year. We were inspired by the motion of the 'Jwibulnori', which makes a centrifugal force and applied it to the design of our 'Bulnori'. By swinging a 'Bulnori', electricity is generated and powers a light. It provides light not only for play but also for 3rd world children to be able to study at night.
