Wind-up LED light: No charging needed

The Timer To Light device is powered using mechanical energy. That's right, no batteries, so no charging.

This interesting LED light concept will surely go well with those looking to add a little mood lighting while staying eco-friendly. Designed by Jasper Hou, the Timer To Light device is powered using mechanical energy. That's right, no batteries, so no charging. In a way, it works like a wind-up toy. In this case, the base is rotated to store energy, which can then be used to light up the LEDs while it slowly unwinds.

From the images, the Timer To Light concept comes in several pleasant hues, which should blend easily into any room in the house. While no details were given as to how long the light will last, we're hoping the timer ratings at the base refer to minutes rather than seconds. Else we can only imagine the frantic and rather pointless exercise of cranking up the device for a few moments of ambient-light enjoyment.
