Sometimes a Great Notion

Truly great ideas are those so simple that one always tends to say "Why didn't I think of that." Well, LuminAID is one of these. To whit...

The LuminAID solar light proposes a new direction for solar technology. Flexible, photovoltaic film is laminated to polyethelenevinyl acetate plastic (PEVA). The LuminAID solar light inflates to produce a quality of light similar to a lantern. The LuminAID solar light provides 5 hours of light and fully charges in 6 hours. The inflatable core measures 9" L x 9" W. Printed on the core is a frit pattern that consists of white dots. The frit pattern diffuses the LED light.

The LuminAID solar light inflates to diffuse light like a lantern.

After seeing this, I contributed because the impact this tech will have on society will be great and besides, I go camping and having a rechargeable light source as elegant as this, it's a no brainer to be sure.

Gizmag has a nice piece about the company as well. Check it out, you won't be sorry.
