Dynamic Hand-Powered Lamp Takes Kinetic Energy For A Spin

Dynamic Hand-Powered Lamp Takes Kinetic Energy For A Spin

Design student Karin Johansson has come up with an interesting working concept for a spinning-globe style Dynamic Lamp, that transforms kinetic energy from the spinning motion into light (video below).

All the magic behind the Dynamic Lamp is performed by a dynamo hidden presumably in the base, which powers the lamp without assistance from batteries or mains power. It does require a little effort on your part though, as the light will only stay on as long as the globe is spinning.

The Dynamic Lamp looks like a clever and easy to use form of emergency lighting or for use when camping, but it’s not entirely practical for day-to-day use unless the spin duration can be dramatically improved. As it stands, a solid spin seems to get only 30 seconds of light.

Check out the video below to see the Dynamic Lamp in action.
