LuminAID, solar powered inflatable pillow works as green lighting solution for developing countries
The developing world has its fair share of troubles, owing to the fact that electricity there is more of a luxury than a necessity! People living in areas in far flung developing countries usually have no other light sources besides the sun itself, and after-dark hours are usually spent in darkness. Bringing light to these parts of the world, the LuminAID concept is a thoughtful and innovative device that works as a pillow as well as a source of light. This inflatable plastic pillow sports a solar panel which when exposed to six hours of sunlight shines the LEDs packed in it for a whole 5 hours! Also, this one’s waterproof and can withstand the elements well enough.
Costing $25 a pop, buying one of these will have another sent to people in developing countries, helping them bring light to their dark hours.
