Gravity Light : A new innovation for Developing Countries.

Humans are powering many things with  the help of gravity since thousand years. In our present, the electricity which comes to our homes, offices, schools and industries are generated by Dams which produces electricity by the help of flowing water from a height and thus electricity produced. But there are so many where there is no electricity and many people can’t afford them too.
For solving this problem a group of engineers invents a lamp which works on the same idea by which DAMS produces electricity.
And the name of the lamp is GRAVITY LIGHT.
GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent. For free.

The main reason for inventing the lamp is:

Following the initial inspiration of using gravity, and years of perspiration, we have refined the design and it is now ready for production. We need your help to fund the tooling, manufacture, and distribution of at least 1000 gravity powered lights. We will gift them to villagers in both Africa and India to use regularly. The follow-up research will tell us how well the lights met their needs, and enable us to refine the design for a more efficient MK2 version. Once we have proved the design, we will be looking to link with NGOs and partners to distribute it as widely as possible. When mass produced the target cost for this light is less than $5.

Why GravityLight?

Did you know that there are currently over 1.5 billion people in the World who have no reliable access to mains electricity? These people rely, instead, on biomass fuels (mostly kerosene) for lighting once the sun goes down.

GravityLight vs Solar powered lighting.

A commonly held view is that solar powered lighting is the answer to these problems in the developing world. However, a number of conflicting factors combine to complicate matters. Solar panels produce electricity only when the sun shines, so the energy needs to be stored in a battery to produce the light when it becomes dark. The amount of energy stored is dependent on the size of the panel, the size of the battery, and how much (if any) the sun has shone.

However, batteries, panels, and lights are expensive, and beyond the reach of people with no savings. Solar lighting projects continue to provide lighting for thousands of people in the developing world, but the spread is slow because the cost is too high for individuals, so they need to be bought and installed by communities instead.

Hang it in the shed or make it into a great porch light, you can clip on a hanging basket or anything weighing about 20lbs.
