freeplay foundation

By Danny Sullivan

Remember the amazing wind-up radio that appeared in the late 90s? Well, the Freeplay Foundation, the organisation behind that remarkable invention is close to extending the technology into an area that could have an even greater impact on third-world countries: home lighting.

The BBC reports, “As part of its LifeLight Project the Freeplay Foundation has drawn up designs for a charging base unit that would be able to power up several detachable lights that can be used around a home.”

It’s always exciting to hear about new technology innovations, but it’s even better when the impetus behind the innovation is truly for the benefit of others.
