SHINEON bottle cap

SHINEON designed by gregorysung ( 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 10 watts of lights versus otherwise environmentally hazerdous and traditional karoseen lamps used in rural Guatamalan villages where the project focused its efforts.
