The lamp is fitted with a ring of small solar panels
Camping can turn out to be quite a hassle, especially if one plans to spend quite a lot of days in the wilderness and feels like they could not possibly make do without a light source.Most people turn to flashlight but, thanks to designers An Dayoung, An Youjung and Seo Jihyun, a better and more environmentally friendly lighting option could soon come their way.
The three have created a caterpillar-like lamp that runs on solar power, and which is fairly easy to carry around, seeing how it is made up of several segments that one should only piece together to create a glowing “larva.”
As detailed on Red Dot, “This segmented lamp houses LEDs in short lengths of tube, each of which has a solar-powered battery, a positive pole, and a negative pole.”
Furthermore, “Segments can be connected to form the desired lamp length, and covered with a soft silicone skin. When the ends are joined, the lamp creates a loop and lights up.”
Trend Hunter tells us that, thanks to its shape, this innovative lamp can be hung almost anywhere one wants.
Truth be told, I don't think I like its shape enough to install it in my home, but I do have to admit I would have no issues taking it with me when going camping.
