Starrynight LED solar powered light

May 11th, 2011 by retail design blog

Starrynight is a combined light and nightlight that recreates the starry night sky while using energy efficiently. For thousands of years, people have been fascinated by the stars in the sky. Twinkling lights and the changeable appearance of stars attracts us. Similarly, people enjoy looking at satellite photographs of cities at night. The main purpose of the Starrynight light is to recreate the fascinating starry night sky and to use energy efficiently. A transparent light-collecting module (provided for this project by Mechanical and Systems Research Laboratories [MSL]/Industrial Technology Research Institute [ITRI]) serves as an exterior lampshade. It also collects light energy when the main bulb lights up, and converts it to electricity. This charges a battery that powers the starry LED nightlight. The collected light energy also boosts the solar cells. Thus, when Starrynight is switched into nightlight mode, it uses recycled energy to power its LEDs and establish an enchanting atmosphere. Starrynight proposes a new way to extend the applications of solar energy – taking it from the outdoor or semi-interior environment to the core area the every house. The styling of Starrynight makes it distinct from most ordinary solar energy products. The product blends green technology with everyday life. Design: Shao Wei Huang

    Innovative design i must say. I have been using a solar lantern manufactured by NIMH Technolinks, that has a simple design but provides a good light. Where can i buy these in India?
