What a great humanitarian project.

Christopher Whelan's curator insight, October 24, 2013 7:15 PM

This type of product is a great reminder that innovation is everywhere and that ideas are never truly complete. A great example of forward thinking, the Gravity Light tackles the kind of problem that should be focused on more. Just because most people living in the United States can afford electricity does not mean there should not be alternative solutions available such as this. Although this device was created to help the less fortunate (and by the looks of it, it will) does not preclude the privileged from benefiting as well. Inventions such as this have the ability to not only promote the world's standard of living, but also stimulate the minds of others.

This is a product that Brand Project should invest in.
