SHINEON

SHINEON designed by gregorysung (www.gregorysung.com) and leading a team of researchers from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Parsons Paris School of Design have designed and engineered SHINEON, a low cost solar/LED lighting system. The rechargeable lighting system can be produced for less than $2 US (not including solar panels) and provides 100 lumens of lights versus otherwise polluting traditional kerosene lamps used in rural Guatamalan villages where the project focused its efforts.
